I don't really know the specifics but Vista has a more robust networking stack and a few new administrative tools. A friend of mine runs tech support for a local teleco and he was talking about how much easier it is to manage issues from and with a vista machine. Like a said, no specifics but thats what i know.

I just changed from XP to Vista 64. So far so good. I can"t really tell a difference in performance except Vista loads programs alot faster.

Well there's a good +. I don't doubt that, but I couldn't share printers with vista... lol... I installed XP and boom, there was my printer ready for my network. That's only my case, though.

My Vista install was infinitely easier than any XP install, including Home, Pro, Pro 64, and Server 2003. It was able to find basic drivers for all of my peripherals, so I could connect to the internet to get updated drivers for all of my hardware. That alone made me love Vista, plus the interface is super sexy, and I have noticed a decent speed increase in opening programs.

Doesn't xp automatically share printers with other machines on the network? or was that just pre sp2? I remember going to lans and then getting back home and having 50 or so printers available, all of them saying shared on *'s machine. It even changed my default a few times. It thought it was more funny than annoying though

I like Vista because I personally have seen NOTHING that deters me from it and it will continue to be supported my Microsoft while XP will not. It will be the current OS and because I am a gamer, games will eventually switch to primarily DX10 and I will already be ready for it. I have noticed NO loss of FPS and NO decrease in performance. I haven't run benchmarks, but none of my games seemed any less smooth.

I like the look and feel of it and have come across nothing I disliked. It never crashes or freezes on me and it works great. I see no reason to turn back to XP.

XP doesn't "automatically" share printers. You have to enable it through windows firewall (and/or through home network). When I do this in XP, my printer can be seen by all computers on my network. When I tried this process in vista, the shared folders could be seen, but the printers wouldn't share. I found that strange.

That's nice and all... But the question was:

What significant advantage does vista have over XP? Or 2000?

If you've bought it and you like it, that's fine. But what does it offer for most people that warrants forking over $250 for an upgrade? Some people might have missed this point: UPGRADE; we're talking about people who already have XP deciding whether or not to purchase an upgrade key to upgrade their XP install.

Difficult to please you are... Maybe they should just wait 10 years between OSes so they can make "significant" technology leaps and make it feel worth it for you to spend the money.

Everyone knows that software doesnt make "leaps". It makes subtle changes. So when you say signficant its very misleading.

Face the music. XP has limitations in places that Vista never will have. I will not sit here and name everything because that would only start you on a debunking tangent.

You cannot deny the limitations that XP has now and even more in the very near future opposed to Vista.

If you can sit here and say that XP is just as capable in every way as Vista, I will no longer continue this debate as you have become deluded.
