Vista 64 and UAC
I’ve just rebuilt my main development machine with 64 bit Vista on a quad core. So far I haven’t had any glitches with drivers and I have all of my core development tools installed.
I went through this process a year ago and it was definitely more frustrating then.
UAC isn’t quite as annoying as it was a year ago either. Before it seemed that every important action I would take would prompt another popup. So either I’m being slow boiled to accept UAC or I’m just more patient and receptive to the security feature now.
Anyway, 64 bit Vista has been a good experience this time around and I can use all 4G of RAM with out the 32 bit limitation.
