Microsoft Vista Overview by Daren Steglemeier Was here in May and talked briefly about Vista; will try to go deeper this time. Internet 7 is built into Microsoft Vista along with _____. Operate Vista at 512 MB, run it at 1 GB. Processor speed - high end processors from the last 2 years should work. 3D graphics functionality if graphics card has 64 MB of video memory and a WDDM driver. MS has improved security by randomly moving where memory is accessed, eliminating trivial buffer overrun exploits. Some definite interest in a technical workshop; Daren will work with Craig Bennion to set one up in the December time frame. Question (Nelson Beebe) about reboots that are required by Windows for updates/patches. Daren: some progress will be seen in that area - Microsoft wants to move away from these, too. Drivers especially graphics drivers cause device crashes. They've addressed this.
