The Apple iPad
I guess it is about time for me to weigh in on the recently announced Apple iPad Tablet. I would not be a blogger if I did not, right?
Previously on Worthless Genius, I talked about my misgivings for the then-upcoming Apple presentation, and the impact–or lack thereof–the announcements would make on my life. I used my oracular powers to divine that my life would not be changed in any significant way by the results of this presentation.
Was I correct in this assumption?
Alright, Let's See It.
It is that time again, time for Apple fanboys to go all out and present as many unfounded rumors as they can possibly muster in a week’s time.
The time leading up to a new Apple presentation has historically been filled with massive amounts of wild stories about what new shiny product the Cupertino powerhouse corporation will be coming out with next.
Though I understand everyone’s enthusiasm for the upcoming event and the possibility of an Apple-branded tablet PC, I think that I am once again going to be underwhelmed by the news. Here’s why.
So, I ended up having quite a few problems with the original setup that weren’t expected. I am going to have to fundamentally change the way that I look at how I do work, and what exactly is needed while I am doing said work.
Here’s a fairly short explanation.
Originally I had planned to do this experiment using the 32-bit variants of Ubuntu and Windows XP. I have recently purchased 8GB of RAM, however, so I will need to use the 64-bit variants in order to take full advantage of this hardware.
What I need to know is which Windows version should I use?
- Windows XP 64-bit
- Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
- Windows 7 Beta 64-bit
If I stick with Windows XP 64-bit, will I have issues with Adobe CS4?
Will I hate myself for even thinking of installing Vista?
Should I bother with Windows 7, since the beta will run out in August?
Do you have any experience with any of these Operating Systems, or some insight that might help me make the right choice? Let me know in the comments.
