    Seems like it doesn't apply to OEM version though...no help to my new build :(

    Somewhat off topic, but can anyone tell me which versions of Vista support dynamic disks?

    It should tell you on the MS site; however, unless I am reading it all wrong, I believe all Vista versions support dynamic disks.

    I am wrong: Enterprise and Ultimate only...

    Price cut, eh? In my neck of the woods the local farmers call that putting lipstick on a pig. I suppose I should be somewhat grateful for Vista, however. It's good for business. I've made lots of money from compatibility issues, sales of new hardware to people who bought a new computer only to discover their old scanner/printer/tablet/whatever are no longer supported, and Vista's ability to BSOD like no Windoze OS has since Windows ME.

    Lord knows I'd be out of business tomorrow if everyone owned a Mac. Damn things never need fixing.

    If that were true, I'd never have had to support an advertising agency who had to call me out nearly every week for something new going wrong with their Macs. Their Windows XP machines, on the other hand, rarely had issues.

    Not saying that Windows boxen are better than Mac boxen... just sayin' that the never-failing Mac is a myth.

    I'm pretty sure I can crash my Mac more than my Vista box

    notice the 'I can crash' that's right folks, its the users who crash systems, not the system crashing itself

    it's likely that my years of experience with NT and 9x have led me to 'treat' the OS better, and my lack of experience with the mac mean I do stuff that perhaps I'm not supposed to

    kind of like how most techies never have issues with there own machines, go figure
