I just recently built my Rig, and went to x64 XP, I wanted to know if there has been a recent performance change in Vista, and if it really has a benefit over XP x64.
The reason most people on these forums use Vista is because it is the forum bias. Some forums are biased towards ati or nvidia, amd or intel, etc... you get the point. It's silly though, because XP x64 is currently the best OS you can get, and is better in every way than any version of Vista.
I would strongly advise you to disregard what most people will tell you about switching to Vista. Stick with XP x64, it dosen't get any better.
That being said, Server 2008 may
finally be almost as good, or as good as XP x64. I am looking into dual booting and configuring it as a workstation and I will report on my findings.
