you should try vista ultimate lite , pm me if you wanna know more , it runs fine on my p4 2.8ghz 512mb ram and a tnt 2 video card

i just installed it on my computer in my sig and it actually runs pretty much the same as xp although i have speedbost enable on one of my usb flash drives so i suppose that helps , i suppose if i load a few apps up at once it willslow down , i plan on adding more ram to my system ina f ew months taking it up to 1gb so i suppose i will have better performance then and may even get rid of the xp partition on my hard drive and not run dual boot
