Okay, on Friday I was ranting quite heavily about the absence of Windows
Vista drivers for the Fujitsu (Siemens) Lifebook T4210 but situation changed
recently. So far, even not tested Beta drivers wasn't available but now, at
least, untested and unsupported Windows Vista drivers became available from
Fujitsu Siemens' European supports pages:
The only problem - some drivers are still missing and has not been released
so far - including such important drivers like the auto rotate screen (changing
from Notebook style to Tablet PC style) and I still get an error message (I can
ignore and thankfully doesn't crashes my whole system) if I rotate the screen.
To rotate the screen from landscape to portrait, I have to use the hardware
buttons. However, to make these buttons working, I had to install the Windows XP
button utility because the Windows Vista drivers section also misses this (and
other) T4210 applications.
Anyway - finally I have Windows Vista Business (RTM) running on my T4210:
Anyway, hope Fujitsu (siemens) will come around the corner with the final
drivers and utilities soon. IMHO, Windows Vista is worth to upgrade to (at least
for power users) since it offers some great mobility (Notebook in general) and
Tablet PC features and together with Office Systems 2007 it's a great package to
