"Achy Breaky Installation
In Star Wars, Han Solo and Chewbacca famously had problems when
they tried to take the Millennium Falcon into hyperspace. Our
experience getting into Phoenix HyperSpace was a lot like that:
Only on the third laptop we tried were we actually able to get
HyperSpace up and running, and even then it was with a pretty large
"Assuming you can get it installed and fully functional,
HyperSpace gives you a simple environment from which to browse the
Web. None of our test systems had the requisite CPU for Hybrid, so
we tried installing HyperSpace Dual on three systems that met that
version's system requirements: a new MSI Wind U100 netbook (1.6GHz
Atom and 1GB of RAM) and a couple of old Dell notebooks -- an
Inspiron 300M (1.2GHz Pentium M, 640MB) and a Latitude D600 (1.8GHz
Pentium M, 512 MB), all running Windows XP SP3.
"When you run the HyperSpace setup wizard, it assesses your
system for compatibility with either version of HyperSpace and
proceeds to install the appropriate version. Phoenix recommends you
back up your PC before installing HyperSpace, and makes you
acknowledge the recommendation by clicking a check box before the
installation can proceed. Backing up is good advice in this case,
because unlike a garden-variety app, HyperSpace repartitions your
hard disk to carve out a 3GB partition for itself, which is an
inherently risky activity."
