Vista on an External Display

Last week, I had to give a presentation and my Tecra M5 Vista laptop would not project on the screen. After playing around with the obvious suspects (Fn keys, Toshiba Presentation Button, changing the resolution) the reason was narrowed down to not having the correct display Driver. After I installed nVidia Display Driver, Vista could project on the screen and I gave a preso yesterday using the same laptop.

There was no need to restart Vista.

Why use Vista when you could install Solaris Express ?

Vista comes pre-installed with .NET 3.0 framework and I need that for showing interoperability with Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT, aka Project Tango, http://wsit.dev.java.net).
