I have used Vista. In fact, I have it on my laptop right now. I am in the process of taking it off though, because it eats up my battery life five times faster than XP does. It runs so much slower than my XP install did. I have 2GB of RAM and maybe if I had 4GB instead I would like it a little bit better. I ran it on my PC also, I liked it except for the lack of compatibility. It did eat up the RAM too. That seems to be the main issue. Personally, I am more comfortable with XP. It seems more stable at the moment.
You don't need to get hostile about things. You are the types of people that make threads 'flame threads
'. YOU take YOUR 'slander' elsewhere. A real OCN MEMBER has respect for a fellow's opinion, even if it may contradict his own.
To sum it up, if you have more than 2 Gigs of RAM, then have at it. You may like it. You don't need a quad core processor or high end graphics card. Vista will adapt to what you already have.

My lappy used 1.4 Gigs at idle. The most I could get it to use was 1.8gigs.
