Why? What's wrong with Vista?
I've been using it ever since putting this new rig together, and it's awesome. I'm using Ultimate 64bit and I don't have any complaints.

The only things that didn't work were CoreTemp and TAT, cause of some missing driver. This is not a mistake on Microsoft's side, but on the developer's side.


I don't get you people. You have a bad opinion of Vista for no reason whatsoever. It's kinda like these wannabe kids at school that imitate the "cool" kids, trying to fit in, but ending up looking lame. You guys just decide to jump on the bandwagon.

Like spelling errors that caught on to the English language.

I have no reason to use Vista. I built this machine with XP. XP works with more things than Vista does. Until I see a need to move to Vista (some program I need to run that only runs on Vista, for example), or Vista becomes more compatible with the programs I already run, I'll stay on XP for now

Which programs don't work for you that you absolutely need? There are probably alternatives, and Vista is worth using them.

You also got the compatible idea wrong. It's "my programs become more compatible with Vista", not "Vista becomes more compatible with my programs".


On another note, since you don't have a DX10, you probably don't feel as compelled to upgrade.
Even without DX10, Vista feels and runs better than XP. It doesn't really take any getting used to either: I was used to Vista before finishing my video drivers download.

The only downside is you'll be used to how the windows beautifully appear and disappear, and when you're using XP, it'll bother you that they don't.

I'll take another look once MS release a service pack. Until then I'll let you bunnies test it out & send your error reports to MS..

I haven't encountered any bugs yet.
I guess you shouldn't be using a computer since every OS has bugs.

Just curious as to what compatibility issues. And yes it does use more resources because it has more bells and whistles. It loads faster,looks and feels better and has DirectX 10. It will boot and run stable with a higher OC than XP will (at least for me). The only drawback I have found is in gaming and it will not preform quite as well as XP but at stock setting on my 8800 GTS cards (SLI) they are within a couple of hundred points of each other. If I overclock the cards then XP wins hands down. But this is just a nVidia driver support problem and my bet is soon vista will be beating XP because it is a more efficient OS. (In my opinion) I duel boot, XP on my 15,000 ultra 320 SCSI 0-raid hard drives and Vista on Seagate 7200.10 0-raid hard drives which does give XP the advantage in data transfer and probably helps it out in gaming and thus the wider spread when benching OCed cards. Anyway running the 2 OS side by side Vista out preforms XP with fewer problems at least for me. I have been running both since beta 1 and Vista has come a long way since the beginning.

Agrred I am now using 163.11 beta drivers now as the are oout performing the older WHQL Drivers however because its not WHQL madden 07 will not not play crash to desktop. Rivatuner hates beta drivers too. So if looking for game compatibility go WHQL, if looking for best performance I recommend the 163.11 beta drivers. My other rig is a 6800. Tried the WHQL drivers on the 6800 and that rig now has higher HD resolution support, and now recognizes his Samsung HDTV. Both rigs are now running VISTA Ultimate both both rigs use to run XP
