I know that there is a graphics card porblem with the 8800 series.. I only have problems with compatability with Macromedia Studio.. What other problems are you having?

I used vista, then I went back to xp to let them get the bugs out. Ill got back to vista in a few months.

vista is a fine os, just needs some more polishing

blackeagle, I was running vista in Jan using the RTM version.. Got rid of it the last week of Jan due to having some driver issues.. Started using it again when I got my new laptop a month or so ago and now I have it on all but 2 computers... I don't have many problems at all.

I run Vista because it looks nice, runs VERY fast (onces its booted up, it screams!), and is the way of the future, so I may as well get used to it

I am dual-booting with XP simply because Source games (CS:S, HL2, etc) have sound issues, and Alchamey only sort of works. I hope Valve will make HL2: EP2 compatible with the way Vista handles audio, and then release a patch for older games (CS:S, HL2, etc) to add compatibility for them, since they are the only reason I keep XP around at all.

I do alot of software installs and alot of tuning on cars and vista give me a hard time with alot of the software that is needed and also just use's up everything just to look good.

xp all the way. Half of my apps don't work with vista, there are sound issues, worse game performance, and the extra eye candy is worthless. I won't be using vista til dx10 games come out. I bought vista with my new build but now the dvd is lieing useless on my desk after I uninstalled vista.

I am duel booting xp and vista, mainly using xp for now since vista only games havent come out yet. (yes lost plannet has vista support but the full retail game is not out) As others have said performance is lower in vista than xp, as well as bad driver support for hardware. A simple compare i did of the 2 OS's just after fresh install xp 100mb ish page file vista 500mb ish.

vista!!! runs very well, and will only get better as hardware gets faster!

you people need to keep in mind, this operating system is more comprehensive, and therefore will be a bit more of a resource hog, but it is also the future so accept it or be stuck in the xp age forever and ever, i choose progress...

all the new stuff will work with vista, and at some point you are going to have to leave ur old stuff behind, and knowing how often u guys upgrade... why waste money on another xp license?
