Hi Samel,

I think that you should look to your hardware rather than join the knock Vista mob! I have been running Vista Home Premium since the first RC and have not had a single BSOD. PS CS3 and now CS4 run fast and Bridge is now a rapid, and reliable browser, both on my laptop and my desktop.

Re: what are your experiences with vista

do a search for "vista copy slow" on google, i rest my case.

regarding the bridge with air incompatibility/clone,brush lag. i'm on a quadro 350 card. a cheap pro-card but still more than enough for everyday use. turning off the openGL-acceleration didnt make any change.
(other specs: 4gb ram, dual opteron, 2x10000rpm raptors for scratch)

i'm back to xp-pro and i havent had a crash for several months.

If you googled it why didn't you apply the RDC fix? Easier to whinge?

Re: what are your experiences with vista

the RDC fix seems to work for some and not for others.
it did not work for me.. there are a number of hotfixes out
and the topic has been debated endlessly on various forums.
i'm sure i could have resolved the issue had i given it some more time
but as it was, i didnt have the time and i needed something that would run stable. ie. xp-pro, or a mac for that matter.
i dont think i'm whingeing if i dont want to have to spend days scouring the internet for a fix to make my os handle something so rudimentary as
copy/paste/delete.

If you tick the box 'Use my settings for this device' then click on your Xrites monitor profile, and then on the 'Set as default profile' button your problem should be resolved.
Hi Roger, nope, everything is already set just as you describe, yet the problem exists. Any other ideas?
