Default Re: Should I Get Vista?

lol, who would pay for a piece of software at 159$? try getting adobe creative suite premium cs2.. 1000+$ right there, but uh, if you have a working os right now, just stick with it, wait for microsoft to work out all the bugs and maybe for a service pack release.. then i'd consider getting vista as it'd be safer and hopefully, the price would be more... friendly

Wait a little while for more Vista software. Trust me. I'm using Vista Business right now, and even though I love the OS, it sucks having most drivers in beta. :-\

Yeah, I cant even find a driver for RC1 video. I'm using an RC2 driver. But thats a lil different as Im using a beta.
I'm getting vista mostly cause of DX10. But also it looks sweet. I only have 1gb of Ram but it still works well I think.

Same. I only have 1GB of RAM and it runs pretty well.

As for those of you who keep saying Vista sucks in performance compared to XP...

There actually isn't that much of a difference.

wait a while till they sort out all the problems , if i decide to get it i am going to wait till they release a service pack for it

plus by that tiem it may have come down in price and dx10 cards will also be realy cheap

I don't know about VIsta being slow. It's running super fast for me. I've got AOE3 running and it may be psychological, but it does seem to have less of a lag compared to XP. I love it. I think it's the best OS to date. I had some initial bugs and kinks to work out in the beginning after the install. Hell, I even got the blue screen of death during the install process. Now, it's fixed and I got most drivers updated, Windows Update, and everything's fine now. I can do pretty much everthing in Vista now without having to go on my laptop. I just burned some songs onto my CD using Media Player 11. For movies, well, that's a problem right now since Nero and Roxio haven't updated anything for Vista yet.

Same shit happened with XP and previous OS's. No worries...the Vista Service Pack 1 (codenamed 'Fiji') is rumored to be released later this year.

Same. It does run a bit zippier than XP did. Uses a bit more resources though...I have 1GB of RAM and the RAM meter on the Sidebar shows 48%.
