Yup - I preferred Vista over XP because I had decent enough HW to run it, and it ran better on legacy hardware than XP did on legacy hardware - I ran XP on a Pentium 200 MHz machine amped up with 96 MB of RAM _ no go, it was slow as molasses.
I ran Vista on a P4 2.0 GHz CPU with an MX 440 video card and 1 GB of RAM - Other than aero it ran slower, but not as slow as XP on that Pentium 200.
Plus, Vista took out a need for major anti-intrusion software, the 17 layers of hell as I call it - you start adding all those in there and XP runs a lot slower. Finally, compare apples to oranges - I am pretty positive that this is probably only the second time that a newer OS version runs faster than its predecessor *on identical machines* _ newer OSs tend to have more code and thus tend to run slower, at least until we started introducing multiple core processors to the end user (think during the tail end of XP's shelf life). W7 takes all the good security and and features and tweaks them into better features and adds a good bit of speed - but it is a lot more rock solid than Vista x64 was when I was installing drivers and such....
Overall, I loved Vista - until I installed W7 and played with it the first time.
