Go seven! I find Vista SUCKS. none of my games worked for it and none of my mics, headsets, mice, keyboards, and tablets worked. Half the time it crashed on a totally new 3000$ computer. (Which of course was stolen.) Xp was not as good in built in security as vista, but you could just fortify it with a bunch of free antivirus programs. You can also make Xp look JUST LIKE VISTA and use ALL the new features of vista with only a little more cpu usage. Vista was a failure and MS is makeing up for that with seven.

while i admit it didnt have a good launch.....

a computer for that price should be at least be able to use vista....

it must have been malware or something but vista dosent reserve the bad rap it gets

(the story on the vista capable fiasco is another story as this is cleary MS at fault and wishfull thinking for some consumers...)

vista is wonderfull on a capable machine and is very usefull depending on the hardware you use....
(i have serviced a few computers and i see this all the time where the user thinks that their OEM computer running vista is just so slow while in fact it is all the things OEM's shove in their machines....

once their machines are cleaned of these apps and installed freeware apps they think they see a whole different computer...)

(i myself use many operating systems and the first mistake is to abide by one single company/OS....)

EDIT: But, I do have to give Vista credit for looking much better
i swear one more thing about this xp is better than vista

i will put it as my sig....

"vista is marketed for everyone but vista is not for everyone"

"vista is not as bad as people think"

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.
