Anyone know the system requirements?
So far only thing I can really find is regarding the graphics card requirements.

Common hardware guidelines

Windows Vista runs on a majority of modern computers that can run Windows XP, carry the “Designed for Windows XP” logo, have a mainstream processor from Intel or AMD, and have 512 MB of RAM.

Windows Vista provides the best possible user experience allowed by the graphics capabilities of each computer. In particular, Windows Vista takes advantage of many PCs with high-end graphics cards. As graphics support is still being finalized, customers who plan to purchase new PCs should consider specifying graphics cards that are more easily upgraded, such as those with AGP or PCI Express interfaces.

I had the same problem with the previous beta.

It helped to set it to high color 16-bit at the time.
Haven't received my new version yet. :tazz:

When you look out a window what you see below you is a vista. So can you guess what the window is?

It looks nice n the names of it will never be any big issue. How it runs n what the advantages are is what i would like to know. So tired of buying the latest just to find out i don't really need it.

When Windows XP came out I wondered "Why XP" I then took it upon myself to name the next windows. In my mind it was going to be "Windows Horizon" so I guess Vista doesn't sound all that weird to me. :tazz:
