Death of xp, Nooooo  

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
It makes me sad to see so many people switching to vista despite the horrible, game/benchmarking performance.
I myself have vista32, vista64, and xp32, but will not switch over/install till new games wont support xp. Unfortunately it looks like most are jumping the gun.

Wow, just make the switch already. I've been running Vista for around a year with ZERO problems and all of my games run PERFECTLY FINE.

XP is so overrated...

I'm sticking with XP as long as I can. It drives me nuts when someone wants computer help and they have vista because all of the menus and stuff are moved around and renamed. Though I think you are right about games being vista only, there are some out there, like Halo 2 for PC, but I am sure more companies will start making games in only DX10.

I liked XP better than Vista. It runs way faster.

Oh well, I stuck with win2000 till xp sp1 came out.

NEVER, "or till i have to", xp is not overrated, it kicks vistas ass in game performance and benchmarking.

actually I have both, I dual boot and I am in XP 100% of the time.

Games lag in vista (ping wise), and I can't get rid of it, whereas games don't lag at all in xp.

I'm hardwired.

Not to mention the obvious performance decrease is a major turnoff. I dont need all the eye candy, xp has it all.

I think the whole "Vista sucks in games/benches" is a hype.
Vista sucks if you don't configure it right, disable the useless stuff it comes with, etc. Which most people don't take the time to do, so they automatically say it sucks with games/benches.
