The only people who bitch about Vista are people who didn’t upgrade their hardware as suggested, too lazy to bother to learn, or know very little about computers in general.
I mean no disrespect to anyone on this forum, but seriously with the right hardware Vista is twice as reliable and faster than XP. I switched to Vista over a year ago on all seven of my machines and I will never go back to XP. Now granted I don’t pay for software… but still.
I agree with what you have to say, especially about stability, but Vista is slower than xp in all benchmarks. Just google vista vs xp. Don’t take my word for it.[/quote]
The problem with those benchmark tests is they test the OS’s on “equal” machines. Microsoft made it very clear that Vista requires higher horsepower. So you cannot run the tests on “equal” machines and expect equal results. A high-end Vista rig will be faster than the traditional high-end XP rig, or at least just as fast. It will certainly not be slower.
