Default Re: Vista or XP

I'd install vista. Once i started using it on a daily basis I didn't even like working on an XP computer anymore. If the option is there go vista the benefits outweight the negatives.

Networking is so much easier. Vista finds everything for you, and is lot faster about it. Eh The defrag screen isn't so much missed here. It's nice to actually have a built in schedular for it.

I went back to XP, if I had a 32 bit version of Vista lying around I would've installed it, but no such luck. Finding drivers for all my stuff in 64 bit was terrible.
