Not Vista's fault and if you give Vista enough resources it is faster than XP.
But since you have done such intensive testing and know all there is to know I guess I am wrong. And by the way you just how many people computers that were running XP did you work on that had connection problems. I have worked on allot of them most of which were people not knowing what they were doing. Quite frankly the problems you listed can also be said equally about XP.
Yes Vista is slower at gaming but that isn't a Vista problem it is a driver problem from the developers. And with the progress they are making it won't be long before Vista is faster. Most compatibility problems you talk about are driver issues. Technology advances every day if you wish to stay behind go ahead but before too long there will not be any programs that are written for XP.
Hopefully by then you will realize that these are not Vista problems but software driver problems that the developers of the software are either not going to provide updated drivers or are working on making updated drivers which should have been done long ago. They only had 2 years to get them out.
Any way I will enjoy running Vista and playing DirectX10 games as they come out.
Its funny how people always use this as an excuse...
IT'S STILL A PROBLEM LOL. whether it's vista's fault or vista's driver's fault.
It's still a problem that makes it not as good.

And no you were completely wrong, most people aren't as computer-illiterate as you think. And how can a person turn off the internet with a BRAND-NEW computer? Plug it up and it doesn't work. So they brought it to me.
and it was vista.
I also talked to a lot of business men who had bought 10 new comps for their business and had lots of problems.

I have had a ton of people come in asking for me to install xp on their new vista machines.

Vista has a ton of problems with networking. I worked the last few months as a pc technician and people brought their pc's in all the time with connection issues. Many times, when their product was brand-new right out of the box.
Ditto. Ive had to format several new laptops for customers just to get them on the net.

Ditto again. I got rid of it quick smart when I noticed occassional lag in BF2. IMO it just shouldnt happen with my hardware.

You said what I couldnt be bothered taking the time to say lol..

I am guessing you guys must work for the Geek Squad. Your comments and responses sound like some of the things I have heard from them. Just before they ask me how to repair the problems they can't figure out. Well just keep saying Vista is a bad OS and I will continue to enjoy using it.

we don't use it at work yet, because vista isn't compatible with Autodesk Land Desktop Development 2006. since 2007 is about $8k a seat (x30 ppl), we just can't afford the upgrade yet. and still, 2007 even shows a "compatibility error" when you start it up in vista. still runs, but shows error msg. go figure. i do think vista is an attractive os, and i really do want to like it, but i'm leaning towards waiting on the first sp.

I go through device manager, display adapter, properties, driver tab. In my case it shows 7.15.11.6311 (ie 163.11 drivers).

Screw Vista! What does it say below my name over to the left
<----------

I'll tell ya what it says "PC Gamer"!

I game on my pc and nothing else, cept the occasional web browsing or MP3 burning.

No reason for me to spend money or time finding a hacked version all so I can have a "newer" yet "slower" operating system for gaming.

Also I can tell you none of the hospitals arround here use Vista for their PC's.

I'm sorry but people trying to convince us who do not want it are fighting a useless battle. It's wise to wait for the first service pack before you even bother with it. Unless someone just gives it to you and ya got nothing better to do but try it out.
