Is Vista even worth it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I mean, probably the the reason for me now to get Vista would to be to play DX10 games.

But there are only a few out. So should I just have duel os's? Or Just stick with XP until all the bugs are worked out, and more stuff comes out for Vista?

Dual Boot XP/Vista if you want.

I recently took a total jump to Vista (I had a dual boot going since release)

I'd recommend a dual boot to see if you like it, and can deal with the issues. Depends on the person really...

Vista has improved GREATLY in just the last month.

Hmm, Really? Are there more programs that you can use on it?

Everything within Vista is fine, if not better than XP. Only thing IMO you'd be limited to is compatible software (maybe) drivers (oh yeah.)

Sorry to double post. But Vista is actually very smart, as far as problem solving with hardware and software. As for an example with software and Vista, I was trying to install Nero 7 Ultra, and Vista notified me that there are known errors with Vista and the software I'm trying to install. Although I haven't ran into problems with it yet.
