    oh, i almost forgot. My boot times are right on par with my XP machine. Bear in mind though, i'm only running the beta... a lot of this is liable to change in the actual release.

    No, they are talking about sleep and resume. Which seems to be neither sleep nor hibernate, but some new combination of the two. If this is actually true, it alone will be the reason why every carputer should have Vista on it.

    Safe Sleep & Quick Resume
    The new sleep state in Windows Vista combines the speed of Standby mode and the data protection and low power consumption of Hibernate. Changing or removing a battery during sleep state is no problem, for example, because applications and data stored in memory have been safely written to the hard disk. And startup from sleep state requires just seconds.

    That's gonna be sweet! Hibernate takes 30 seconds on my laptop with a gig of ram. If Vista can do it in a few seconds, count me in.

    I suspect that ultra quick resume will require the hybrid hard drive...the contents of memory are probably written to that fancy new flash component.

    are you running that on a tablet pc by any chance?

    I need to reinstall my laptop (toshiba m200 tablet) and I was thinking maybe I'd put vista on it... how is it in terms of stability for everyday use?

    I use mostly office/outlook/firefox/autocad and some other crap.... msn messenger, etc...

    any thoughts if it is time or if I should go for a standard reinstall of xp from the toshiba restore cd?

    I run it on a P4 3.6 GHz (Overclocked), has tablet PC and Windows Media Center 2005 built in. I would not recommend running it as a every day OS, especially with Office 12. You will need a High Power Graphics Card for it to run smoothly. You're better off waiting till Febuary for the official Beta release.
