Haz la Vista, Baby.

I totally shot all chances of productivity today by installing Windows Vista RC1 on my E1405… It took me a few tries to get it right (as in I installed Vista twice and XP Pro once today…) but it dual-boots XP and Vista now…

It’s good. I didn’t think I’d say this, but Vista works really, really well. None of the stability problems from previous betas… Almost no software compatibility issues… Heck, it even eats up less RAM than my XP Pro installation! No clue how that works. And Aero is awesome….

…Though Vista is most definitely a total ripoff of Mac OS X. Big surprise there…

Unfortunately it only works partially with CSU’s network security software. I won’t be able to use wireless here. And to do the wired connection, I have to authenticate my connection through XP first.

Needless to say, my time management skills were shot for the day.
