I love avast. It VERY effective, can detect the littlelest detail without blocking stuff *coughNORTONcough*POS*cough*. ALso gives you nifty options, doesnt take up system resources etc...

I loves vista! It's so shiny and beautiful....and that's about it...so far..

You should have made it a multiple-option poll.

I hate it because of program and driver issues. I also dislike it because of FPS loss.

I chose driver issues because that covers the most ground of my hatred for it.

Can you add the poll option, "I hate it because it's slow" [among other reasons].
post #26 of 48
Seems like we have a clear majority loving it....

28 'love it' for whatever reason
7 'It's ok' for whatever reason
12 'Hate it' for whatever reason (and personally, the reason 'because it's MS' should be invalidated.. those are people who also hate XP, and probably haven't even used XP or Vista, since they use Linux.... I mean, if you hate MS, don't use their products ).


and Vista is definately NOT slow. The Vista rig I have is more responsive than the XP rig (and yes, the Quad is in the XP rig). It's super fast imo... much more so than XP.

And who has actually shown that is slows performance??

I get slightly higher FSP in Oblivion...

Is it because I run an ATI card maybe in my Vista rig? probably...

Well... there's XP Pro x64 too...

Once I do my rig overhaul (either C2D or AM2/DX10) I'll be using Vista as my main OS and XP only if something doesn't work perfectly on Vista.
