    I got 4.2 point in Windows Vista. And you.

    The highest point in Windows Vista is 5.0? Right?

    I have a 4.0. That is only because of my CPU. For all the other pieces that are measured I get between 4.4 and 5.9!

    The highest point is 6, but they are going to extend it to 7 in RTM.

    7 point in RTM. What are they going to do? Can't imagine!

    Vista is really really a long-wait OS in Microsoft history.

    Intel Quadcore, Dual-SLI nVidia GeForce 8950GTX 4GB-GDDR4, 16GB DDR3 RAM, 1.5TB RAID-0, HD-DVD.

    I can see that being the "high-end" norm within a year.

    Mine's a 3.7, just like littleguru it's the CPU that's dragging it down.

    My laptop gets 1.0, there's it's the video card that's responsible for the low score. Sad

    I don't understand why MS didn't make it an open system with no highest score... I mean 1.0 for a computer that runs vista basic. Like other benchmarks do: In 10 years we have then scores around 1000 points or so.

    I had a FX5200 in my Vista machine that was rated 2.6. It was a bit sluggish but usable for day-to-day tasks. But WPF performance was horrible.

    The new 7600 makes a big difference, but I'm still a bit worried about the WPF performance.

    When I tried it on my primary desktop for a time I got a 1.9... solely because my main HD only had about 15 gigs free... which is kind of odd considering I had about 100 gigs free on the other HD’s in the system.

    No you wont, they'll probaly have it change over time so a PC that was rated, lets say 4.0 now, will be rated at 2.0 or 2.5 in a few years.

    Is there a similar tool for XP? One that tells you how well Vista will run on your PC?

    I seem to recall a PDC talk (possibly Raymond Chen's) that stated this was not the case. The values will simply increase over time, otherwise vendors would have to re-label their packages periodically.
