Everyone is entitled to their own opinion....

Oh, btw, good luck with gaming... soon certain games will only work with vista, per DX10.

Im just asking people to back up claims. I was just wondering what makes it "a good overall OS". Yes WHEN dx10 comes out that will be sweet.

Uh, no. But now that it's RTM, many apps should work. A lot of old programs won't run as expected though.

If your point is that vista is a resource hog... Then I ain buyin it. Everyone tried to make the same dumb point for XP when it came out. All you heard was "OMG XP IS THE SUXXORS!! IT TAKES UP MY WHOLE 512MB OF RAM!!" And 512MB is consider crap these days EVEN ON AN XP MACHINE.

Listen up everyone. IN ORDER TO CREATE MORE AND BETTER FEATURES FOR AN OS. YOU HAVE TO USE MORE RESOUCES. But it doesnt matter. No one thinks anything of dropping 2GB of ram into a computer. Why not use it?? Do you want 2 GB of ram and only using HALF of it???! What is the point in that? Vista runs really smooth on my dated machine. Not to mention is that its SUPER STABLE. And this is an RC. I cant imagine how it would run on something more powerful.

I run it on my Core 2 Duo machine with only 1 GB and with F@H on 24/7, I never notice any slowdowns... however, I disabled Areo because it took a rediculous 85MB of Ram... but maybe my vid card is partly to blame.... I dunno.

Well, that's what ppl have been saying. Linux and Mac and other OSs have been getting more efficient while adding features to their OSs. windows is adding features and reducing performance.

What makes you think performance is reduced? I actually tried vista and the beta version (RC2) actually booted up faster than xp and was overall more responsive. Sure it takes more ram but it seems to make good use of it and speeds up quite a lot.
