Default Re: Vista Or Xp ?

Well, to be honest, it doesn't bother me either way cause' my new laptop will be able to run both (XP & Vista) smoothly. For now though I'll use XP, once that gets phased out, I'll switch to Vista (or maybe once Vista gets all the bugs sorted out [SP1] I'll dual boot that and XP).

My two cents worth.

I agree. I upgraded very recently and I think it runs more stable than XP. AERO isn't as hard on my graphics card as I thought it would be. Runs with no lag and I'm running a radeon X300SE. I thought vista would be much more RAM heavy, but it's not really that bad. It takes a little bit longer to start up but I've also got a lot of stuff too, but for normal operations I find it decent on memory, again it's not as bad as I thought.

Actually Vista has been ahead from time to time. They should put a poll block on new accounts just incase there are some vista haters in here.
