Ok with all due respect Vista is better than XP. I have been running Vista for about 1 Month now and it works. It has nicer features than XP and at last Microsoft has stopped everyone from being root. And they have added many nice features my Mom will love and never understand. And if you don't really give a shi* what your pc is doing Vista is great (700 MB of memory usage, and pagefile.sys is accessed about every 20 sec.) The Defender tool is quite nice to see what is happening at boot no regedit anymore. And it tells you what problems your Pc is having. In total it seams that Microsoft is going into the right direction. But of course I wouldn't be writing this if I would be totally satisfied. By default windows indexes your hard drive all the time. It takes snapshots that you then can recall. So even if you delete a file it is still there. And driver support is slowly picking up. But please don't try and install XP drivers they will fail horribly, and you will be sent to the good old blue screen.

Once I have figured how LDAP works I will write more

From the Microsoft Help system.
How much disk space does System Restore require?

To store restore points, you need at least 300 megabytes (MB) of free space on each hard disk that has System Protection turned on. System Restore might use up to 15 percent of the space on each disk. As the amount of space fills up with restore points, System Restore will delete older restore points to make room for new ones.
