New Vista Machine follow up

December 11, 2007

I let VS2008 finish installing last night while I was at home. I got in this morning, and the system had done an automatic update. It loaded a ton of updates from Microsoft, some were Vista specific but most were not. I was able to confirm that VS2008 installed just fine and I have spent the rest of the morning installing other software.

My experience today has been much different than yesterday. Everything seems to be sailing along: I’ve installed a number of applications, configured some network connections, a printer, installed FireFox and extensions, and did some other configuration. All in all I have nothing to complain about: it seems the Windows Update did a lot of good for this machine.

I’ll probably spend the rest of the day setting up some other goodies, and at lunch time I am picking up my new 22″ Widescreen LCD monitor. After that, I have some SPROC development to do. I promise I’ll be getting to LINQ soon.
