Vista is the product of the future, try using it before bashing it. It is infinity better than XP, I would list all the reason, but I have to sleep tonight.
Hm, what should I trust... Extensive tests performed by Tom's, or what a guy on a forum has to say. I think I'll go with Tom's.
About the only thing Vista does better is load things faster (hello there, superfetch.) If they had just put this capability into SP3, XP would be the clear cut winner.
Vista is better, maybe not in gaming because it loses that precious 3.6 fps you crave so much, but in desktop and anything else its faster for me. I'm sorry they don't cater to your 3dmark program so much.
I think I'll live waiting a few more seconds for my programs to load, and enjoying the increased performance instead. 3.6 fps is about the equivalent of me OCing my gpu from 550/1400 to 645/1700. So I like to think of it this way; Vista is effectively downclocking my card by 95/300.
