Vista is awsome and I aggree that It probably had less problems that xp on its launch. Its amasing cus i can play System Shock 2 on it, It would not even boot in XP. Im so happy with vista. Also the lack of drivers is pretty much not a really big problem anymore. Nvidea has vista edditions to most of there drivers. If your computer is relativly new you shouldnt have a problem finding drivers, you just google the part number.

I think you're wrong. All modern windows operating systems have compatibility programs.

I dual boot with vista / xp.

I prefer xp to game, vista to mess around in.

Gaming = xp in my opinion. And my computer can handle vista np.

Even for gaming?

The only thing Ive found with vista that I dont like so far is that it wont play/install old games with 16 bit installers, and the fact that coretemp doesnt play nice. Besides that, no problems. I run Ultimate x64, and its a snappy, fast OS. I think The ultimate version is the only one with the bitlocker function, but I could be wrong about that.

As for gaming, it might see a few less fps than XP, but overall its pretty darn close. I play a lot of games, and Ive never noticed a significant difference between this and XP.
