Does anyone have anything good and/or bad to say about the new Vista Windows Upgrade due out on 1-30-07 as it relates to FSX?!?#!*!?

Well, I have it now (well got it in Late November for beta testing) and FSX performs quite good on it. Apart from Aero being temporarily disabled because FSX doesn't support it at the moment (because of the non-standard window), it works fine.

So far, on sveral different computers with Vista, I have noticed that you need at least 2Gb of memory to use FSX in a reasonable configuration. There are many tweaks with Vista, as well as FSX, and it will take a good deal of time to accomplish some reasonably accurate evaluations. The more input on the subject the better. But, it would help to set some standards set or there won't be a very helpful to evaluate

You (in my opinion) are correct "you need at least 2Gb of memory to use FSX in a reasonable configuration". I did the graphic card upgrade and memory increase. Good Luck!

You mayfind also with Vista that you need new drivers (printer, etc.)
