Windows Vista Beta 2 Performance Reports

This has strictly been a performance report, but performance aside, it's obvious that Vista is not ready for retail yet. Some of the benchmarks I use most often were unable to even run, which goes to show just how fussy Vista can really be. Most of your simple applications should have no problems in running, but if you have programs that use any databases on your PC, such as Sandra, they will not likely work. Why, I have no idea, but I would love to find out.

Even beyond that, the programs that do work can easily cause problems. This was evidenced when I had to reload a level in BF2 7 times before it would actually work. Because of the nature of the crash, Vista needs some tweaking done in order to fully support the applications we use on a daily basis.

it's quite normal to see these lower performance numbers when running a windows beta OS; same things was noticed between 2000 <> XP Beta; NT4 <> 2000 beta, etc
