just was wondering what peoples experiences are (if any) and peoples thoughts and feelings were to max/msp under windows vista. As many people in the 'Max Community' are mac users and now the magics of intel have made macintoshes very powerful pc's in sheeps clothing just thought some people may have used it or experiemented with it.
I'm a windows user and i assume i always will be. i have no gripes with microsoft which i wouldn't gripe about apple. Anyway i have just done some more experiementation with Max/msp running under vista and i am very pleased.
I have a fairly new PC which is meatyish and has been running XP since i built it. its a Core 2 Duo E6400, nVidia 7600GT, 2 gig ram. i also have a good audio card but have not really been swayed toward vista yet because of m-audio's lack of drivers ( i have a trusty delta pci card). but i thought i would try it out anyway. Max installs and runs with no trouble what so ever. installs in about 30 sec's then a quick restart and were away. i was surprised as i have had trouble with some other software and vista. I did some checks on different objects and runs liek xp. i do however have a speed increse on many aspects and i havn't had as many crashs as i did under xp. this could simply be a coinsdence but hey i like to give vista the benifit of the doubt.
Has anyone else ventured on to vista it would be nice to know if people have had any problems or if everyone is happy.
My main problem is my onbourd realtek HD audio card but hopefully m-audio will hurry up with its drivers.
also the nice fancy 3D aero graphics is a bonus...not half as good as the linux xgl desktop though.
