MSI Wind U100 and Windows Vista

MSI Wind PC Kevin Tofel over at jkOnTheRun has loaded a 10″ Intel Atom-powered MSI Wind U100 with Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate and is putting it through its paces.

He makes a point, and I agree, that you really need to bump up to 2GB of RAM to get the most out of Vista on netbooks. He got a base Windows Vista Experience Index score of 2.7 (because of the graphics), but it wasn’t as bad as it sounded – Aero ran much better than expected.

He was able to get drivers for most components of the Wind installed through Windows Update – everything but the Bluetooth, and it was a smooth install process.
