I answered a few threads on the recording forum today and noticed that people are still having MAJOR issues with using Microsoft Vista on their recording computers. Microsoft Vista came out over a year ago! What’s the hold up? I know that audio interface manufacturers such as Presonus released Vista ready drivers back in the summer. (Maybe I’m just not hearing about the good stories with Vista).
If anyone is running Microsoft Vista successfully on their recording computer, I’d love to know about it. Comment on this blog, send me an email, or join the forum and tell all the RecordingReview.com members about.
It just seems very strange to me that it’s been a year that Vista has been out and I still have to recommend that people dump an extra $100 on XP, an operating system that came out like 6 years ago! With that said, Microsoft got it right with XP. While not 100% foolproof by any stretch of the imagination, it appears that they really haven’t solved any of the flaws in XP. Really, I don’t consider XP to have flaws. I wish it could make good use of RAM in amounts over 2GB. Every operation system could be more stable. I’d love for it to have lower latency. Other than that, I’m quite content.
While Vista claims to conquer the RAM limitations and latency, it appears that they haven’t gotten the stable part right. In fact, it appears to be worse.
Oh well, I’m quite happy leaving Windows XP on my recording rig.
