Its really not if you have all Teh_Updates and such.. I dont know why people complain, unless the computer isnt quite good enough which would result in lag... And for all those people that say "Vista is shit, my games wouldnt work" you are all tosspots, because i have played all my games on vista with no problems at all...

But, just aquire a windoes XP disk and whack it in and install... You will need passwords and keys and such for vista though..

You do realise your hard drive will be the same size if you get XP? Unless of course you just said that to make the penis joke, in which case Touché

Best way is to take it to a computer store, have the hard drive formatted, and have XP put in.

I haven't even manually gotten any of the updates for Vista ( SP1 i think I heard some people raving about ) and I've had no problems with it. Overall a very stable OS, kicks the arse right out of XP.

no, i mean that vista takes up more room on the disk and more processing power. i have vista, and it runs fine, but if you have a **** computer, youre going to have a **** time with vista. the penis jokes are just an added benefit.

Well that's more manufacturers faults for supplying Vista without the option for XP on computers that might not be able to handle it. Dirty bastards.

I use it a love it, no complaints at all...and I need a fast running PC for audio and video work...

I run an acer aspire T180
2.20GHz AMD processor
2BG cheap slow RAM
single 120GB HD
gForce 8600GT

No complaints from me except when I add a lot of FX to my videos...that starts to get to it because it will get to most PCs...I just need a processor upgrade really.

Most PCs running a modern DC processor and 2GB ram should have no problem at all.
Sounds to me like you just need a graphics card. I can play counterstrike on my laptop (Aspire 5570Z all stock) and my desktop...no problem, although I can see it being a problem if my desktop didn't have any external graphics card.

You can get the 8600GT for $100 these days, well worth the price.

My hard drive is nowhere near as big as 500 gig, and i've got 2 gig RAM. Never had any problems playing anything. I suggest you just bet a better graphics card.

I have no problems with Vista, I just think people hate change. I don't know if people can remember, but this is the same thing that happened when XP came out.

I think you'll find the way that Vista manages RAM is about 1,000x more efficient than XP. It doesn't eat it up, it appropriates it and releases it as and when a program makes a call for it.

What's the point in having RAM if it's not being used?

There will always be people ready to bash Microsoft for whatever they do, mostly without actually using the software they are bashing.

Interestingly enough, Vista and Windows Server 2008 are identical operating systems just Vista has the GUI enhancementsand WS2008 doesn't by default. WS2008 gets rave reviews, people are even using it as a desktop operating system, yet Vista is taking the flak even though it's the same product.

I was not aware inanimate objects could be homosexual. This is a major scientific breakthrough.

Rofl, I've been running Vista on a 2gHz, 512mb RAM, 120gb hdd laptop (read: A PIECE OF SHIT) for 6 months without any complaints.

Then again I'm no gamer, just playing PES and such.

Photoshop CS2 works just fine.

Vista is just as good as XP is when fully updated but needs a higher spec'd machine (to run well).
Although that does beg the question: What's the point?

Security?

Neither has any particularly huge advantage over the other security-wise tbh; both have their strong and weak points.
Guess we'll see what happens when the final release of XP SP3 arrives.

Vista is more secure than XP as of now, if I'm not mistaken. It will also continue to become more secure as Vista has updates and XP will quit (I think they already did quit releasing them?)

And size of your harddrive has nothign to do with performance. Just because you have a Geforce graphics card doesn't mean it'll run everything well. There can be any number of reasons why CS is lagging, but Vista is an unlikely cause.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Did you miss the part where Microsoft redesigned the way that Windows handles application privilages, implimented Secure Desktop, UAC and Sandboxed IE to make Windows Vista secure in comparison to the inherintly poor design of XP?

Not to mention by doing this, forcing software developers to actually rework their programs so that they don't require full administrator privilages across the system, as they do in XP?
