So yeah, I fessed up the moneys I had and bought myself a newer computer. Now it came preinstalled with Vista, which sucks. I tend to try to make the most out of Vista until I get fed up to the point I want to kill it.

So the bulk of this is, what should I install, edit, config, etc.

If you hate it, then install XP.

Unless it is a laptop, in which case it will be a lot harder than formating/installing.

What are your Vista problems?
Tips:
Turn off UAC
Turn off indexing
Turn off Aero

That should make it better.

Many companies don't have drivers for XP laptop components any more (because the only model that use those parts are sold with Vista)

It's a common problem.

It really isn't that bad. I haven't had a negative experience, and I've had it since launch. Give it a try, and if you don't like it, go to XP

Re-posting my reply since it was not offtopic, despite what some random mod thinks.

Return the pc, buy a mac, or just install hackintosh. Dealing with Windows is physically painful.

Its called spam dear.

If someone went into every DSTT thread and made posts saying the person should get an R4, they would be deleted also. Its simply not relevant, and just an obvious attempt at being a troll.

It's not spam. I hate Vista, my computer doesn't have xp drivers. Options: Linux (lol), stick with Vista, buy a Mac. I posted my thoughts, it IS censorship, and I make that call, not some random Gbatemp writer.
