    I must agree with Xcalibur.

    It doesn't make sense for Microsoft to spend 7 years making XP stable, and then release the abomination known as Vista. Vista is a piece of shit. Suck it up fanboys [​IMG]

    XP = win

    Vista = fail

    vista might get better in a few years, but soon enough Windows 7 will be out.

    There's a huge war over the issue lately. Best not to get involved, fans on both sides will start complaining.

    Vista is horrible. Drivers were not a nightmare, but playing games with a wireless card-LAG SPIKE.*KILLED*
    Seriously. I had to go buy a 15/18 foot Ethernet(or whatever the name is...) cable just so I could play some freaking games. Then I find out it's HORRIBLE on 1 GB if RAM. I HAD Vista and my brother tells me we won't be able to play ANYTHING with integrated graphics, 1GB of RAM, and Vista Home Premium. So we grab some pirated XP or something and install it. And then I tell him he could install Arch Linux because he loves it so much after XP had been installed for a while and I had loads of stuff on my HD. And when he installed Arch Linux, it went KABOOM and XP was destroyed in the process. He doesn't even know why... Or he doesn't tell me stuff. So now I'm back to freaking Vista because we lost that CD! It's fine because I actually bought a graphics card, 2 GB of ram making it 2.5, and turned off aero effects before playing a game. And then all of a sudden a relative that hates Vista comes over and he pirates XP again and now I got all my stuff on Vista. And basically now I'm stuck with Vista because I don't really want to start over AGAIN.

    Anyways, Vista is alright if you have a good computer, no stinky drivers, and a wired connection... And thankfully I have gone past most of that...I even FINALLY found the good updated drivers for my integrated sound. Vista SP1(which I am still wondering if I should install) WILL NOT INSTALL without my freaking sound drivers updated. Stupid Sigmatel/IDT. Overall, I prefer XP, but I still like playing around with Vista.

    Xcalibur, upgrade to vista in around 4-5 year. Microsoft seemed to have released a premature baby without a incubator.

    What options do you have to disable to make it not suck?

    Vista = OS for casual gamers [​IMG]

    Ah whatever, MS DOS is a less bulky OS than XP...

    I'm not any type of fanboy, so I'm gonna stick out of this one.

    summary: you're too used to XP. So, waiting for windows 7 isn't going to solve anything.

    I ended up removing it from two computers already. One, I had the hardest time trying to figure out how to get it online wirelessly (and it was my first real encounter with Vista so...), and the second time, the genius manufacturers preinstalled it on a computer that only came with half a gig of RAM! Of course, a friend of mine bought a new computer and I had to attempt to get the wireless running on it too. @_@; Too used to XP is too true.

    I'd still like to give it a serious whirl sometime though. I've fought with Win3.11, Win95, WinME, and WinXP thus far. Might as well add another branch to the tree, right?
