A couple of days ago, I finally installed Vista Ultimate on my laptop!  What can I say?  ... it's not too bad.  After getting pretty tired of all the security prompts, I disabled the User Account Control (UAC).  From there, it was off to get my Windows Experience Index!

Needless to say, the laptop didn't do too well.  This is due to the fact that my graphics card is the standard Intel embedded chipset.

Hopefully tomorrow, I will have a chance to install Vista Business on my work laptop so I can see how well it performs.  For now, VS2005 and all the developer tools load and operate just fine.
