1. There are five versions of Vista: Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate. What are the (technical) differences between all the five versions (I couldn't find on the MS website) and which is more suitable for pro audio?
The system requirements for the Vista are pretty heavier for an OS than we used to see. The Mac OS X graphical interface is very similar and it requires a lot less resources than Vista. My questions about this:
2. Will the Vista have some kind of option to disable all of this graphic paraphernalia? If yes, how much will it improve the performance?
3. Is the system more optimized than XP? I mean, with the same hardware I have now, will the system run faster and more stable?
4. I don't know about the kernel, this kind of stuff, but generally, will the audio architecture be improved? We, standard NorthernSounds users, musicians and sound designers, shall move to Vista as soon as it arrives?
