I don't really have the hate that other folks do for vista. I actually like some of it's new features.

Yes, it's a resource hog, but all new windows OS's are.
Yes, there are driver issues all over the place, but that also happens every time a new windows OS comes out.

Most people who complain about vista probably should have waited a lot longer to actually start using it.

My biggest gripe with VIsta was that it was probably release to early but M$ is famous for letting paying customers bug test thier software

I currently use XP and I find Vista fine, the ONLY BIG problem is the compatibility issues with some games...but that's up to the game developers to release some new patches and if you get Vista make sure you have a fast computer!!

Well that's why, you're system is nowhere near strong enough. You need something a lot stronger to enjoy vista.

The only thing I hated about vista was the UAC. Once I disabled that I fell in love with it.

I hate the TCPIP stack and the requirement to have signed kernel drivers in the 64 bit version.

I hate the high resource requirements and the defragger.

http://www.download.com/Defraggler/3...-10752905.html

Problem solved

Only thing I hate about it is theres some little glitches in the OS. My Microsoft "help" doesn't work(Does not respond), or the games folder from the start menu will not stay open(Click, pops up for about a second then goes away).

Other than the little glitches its fine. I just got to see how far I can OC my CPU now that its fall.

I've only been running Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 for a week but i think it has matured nicely since the Beta 1, 2 and RTM days. With a few tweaks it is pretty fast.

I found this site has a few good tweaks
