Vista was a great OS, I almost regret ditching it in favor of 7.
Not saying this because I am a fanboy, but.
I had my sig rig runnign vista for 3 years. It was a true torture. 20+ BSODs, Crashes, hangs, boot took 3 minutes or more, space magically disappearing on the drive, etc.
Another comp in the house with a Quad core and a 9500GT chugs when opening Internet Explorer. Yes. Internet Explorer. It chugs when going to MY PC. Formatting doesn't help it.
So what did I do?
I put 7 on sig rig. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Much lower mobo and GPU temps, not a single crash or TDR (one BSOD due to a program grrr) At least my experience with Vista was very negative. But I cannot speak for every vista owner in the world.
