Windows Vista Capable? NOT!

Thanks to the podcasts "This Week in Tech" and "Windows Weekly" for pointing this out: if your laptop (like mine) has the "Windows Vista Capable" sticker on it, don't expect it to perform well if you install Windows Vista. It won't. All the badge says is that Vista will install and run if you're stupid enough to try it.
Remember how slow your Windows 98 machine was when you "upgraded" to Windows XP? The same thing will happen when you "upgrade" your XP machine to Vista. You'll have to pay a fortune for the upgrade, and then you'll have to add tons of RAM and maybe replace the hard drive. The moral of the story: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you must have Vista, buy a machine with it installed. Don't "upgrade"!
