Laptop need special programs and consideration that desktops user never have to think about, say for instance power management. I want to install vista on my IBM T42, but I'm afraid that modifying vista will be traumatic for my 512 MB Ram Thinkpad. I like vlite, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to make changes to optimize vista for use on my laptop. My question is, have anybody been able to create a vlited version of vista that run very well on a Thinkpad or other computer with 512 Ram or less? If you have please provide some advice on what I should take off, and what I absolutely need in vista to make vista run flawlessly on my laptop. Thank you very much.
