I added the price and the retailer to the thread title there... :)
#2
Thanks. First time deal poster. :oops:

Comparatively, the retail boxed editions from the same source are:

Vista Home Basic = £157.48

Vista Home Premium = £186.48

Vista Business = £233.98

Vista Ultimate = £310.98

(Retail boxed versions of Windows Vista combine both 32 and 64 bit editions on the one disc. Since you won't need both, the OEM offers the significant saving.)

:w00t:

Premium at least is cheaper on ebuyer, and I'd say that's the most popular too. (well, it's the best for the money anyways.)
#5
At these OEM prices I'd definately go with the combined 'Home Premium' + 'Business' feature set of 'Vista Ultimate', especially if you're using a notebook or are a small business user/freelancer who want the entertainment options aswell.

I appreciate the heads-up about the other offer. Do eBuyer offer free delivery?

Or, you could try alternative Operating Systems:

Ubuntu = £0.00
Fedora = £0.00
Sabayon = £0.00
Debian = £0.00
Knoppix = £0.00
Sidux = £0.00
Mepis = £0.00
Slax = £0.00

and loads more, go to http://www.livecdlist.com to download any you want. You can try out live CDs by just sticking the live CD into your computer, then restarting (making sure it can boot from a CD) and it'll run from there, no need to install anything onto your computer. If after a while your pleased with it, you can have it installed onto your computer, all at no charge.

This site will explain the different Operating Systems in more detail. PM me if you need help or are interested in knowing more.

Will 32bit work with 64bit processor?

Yep it works fine - it's actually still preferred over 64bit, as you don't need 100% signed MS drivers for your hardware with 32bit - you do with the 64bit version. Very handy if installing on anything but a brand new "Vista Ready" badged machine.

Thanks for that; it's what I thought but pleased to hear it confirmed for me.

Although good, linux really isnt the answer for most people. Im pretty competent with computers and yet it took weeks to get Sabayon working correctly! Soon after that i got bored and bought Vista

Linux still has a long way to go before its a viable OS for 99% of the computer market. For a start it needs to be easier to install and have better driver support.

Having said that, i did like Sabayon. Good UI, great set of pre-installed programs, more stable than XP (no better than Vista thought) and it was secure out-of-the-box

These prices don't seem anything better than the norm, I don't see how this is a hot deal.

You should try the new Ubuntu.

I have an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ processor

Is this 64 bit?

I think it is 32 bit but the 64 in the name is confusing

Thanks
#16
the 64 in the name isn't confusing at all, it's there because it's a 64 bit processor.
#17
but DO NOT BUY THE 64-bit OS! Its not really a stable retail product at the moment and you don't need it.

Its really a product for the gaming super-hardcore and people who do high drain computer work (i.e. professional video editing, 3D modelling etc)
#18
Buy it from Ebuyer cheaper with google

Your processor can run in either 32 bit or 64 bit mode - as recommended already you're best sticking with the 32 bit version for now unless you have a specific requirement for 64 bit. The latter is not that well supported at the moment, Vista has its share of issues as it is.

'The norm' is retail boxed, so to those unaware of OEM Vista this is a great deal.
#21
From what i've seen of Vista, It sits there, Looks pretty and hogs memory like theres no tomorrow.

I think i'll be sticking with Xp pro for a while yet!!

don't take offence but that's complete bs.

it's just as stable as the 32bit version, ie variable for some hardware until the 3rd party drivers improve.
