Default Vista

Vista? Is there any free version I can use, that will let me run my programs..The beta or watver. Im thinking of reformating tonight, and thought maybe I should try vista, but since I dont feel lke paying for it, is there a beta version that was good, that I can run? If not, I guess back to XP home again..

Why use vista? There are no DX10 games out, and owners of such a graphics card is sorta rare anyway.

G35x, you can shout opinions in Social lougne. When it comes to question on upgrading, go to the OS section.


Now, for the topic. I find Vista odd. It works, but it sometimes hangs during some random stuff. CS3 isn't working out correctly, some games hangs and it makes me restart the PC.

And you're color dreaming for a free version. Vista is out, the rest is crap.
