XP > Vista for sure. I can't stand vista and I've had it for over a year.

It's great for menial word processing, sure, and the WEI (how useless and complete bs) is malarky.

If you need the eye candy, go for vista.

XP has all the functionality and does everything vista can do, minus the performance hit.

Everybody knows that when you bench / game in vista that you lose fps / get lower 3dmarks etc..

I don't know what you kids think is so great about vista.

I for one can barely see the difference between dx9 and dx10 and I think building an OS exclusive to dx10 was a terrible way to market vista. It sucked a year ago, and it still does today.

Sure I like using vista on my laptop. But as far as gaming on my desktop, i'm in XP 100% of the time.

I recently switched to Vista 64 bit premium, reloaded all my games and have only had one issue so far. That was with the driver for my Merc Stealth. Ideazon is aware of the issue and are working on a new driver. In the interim they released a 32bit driver to workaround the issue.

I have not noticed ANY lag or performance problems with any of the games I have loaded. Benchmarks not withstanding there is not difference in playability or speed.
Switching to Vista allowed me to play GoW a little bit too. In XP it would crash just as soon as the actual game loaded, in vista it crashes after 20 minutes.

Change frightens some people to the point of paralysis. In reality change is almost always good.

I for one was waiting for SP1 to make the change, just like I did with XP. I used my win98 box until SP2 was released for XP. I switched to XP mainly because of the improved network code that sped up online games (among other things...). I still have my XP disks, but have not booted them in weeks...

You lose like .01 Fps on Vista over XP and like what a few points in 3Dmark06? Last time i checked you can't run Vantage on XP which is the new benchmark.

I guess you could say the real reason I can't stand Vista is that my games lag ping wise, where (lag spikes every minute or so)

whereas in XP this doesn't happen.

I'm hardwired, turned off any excess network sharing, connection finders, etc, and it still has this problem. It's a major turn off for me.

I also can't seem to get SP1 working. I downloaded it from MS and it corrupted my OS.

That was also another deterrant.

It's obvious that we'll all have to switch to Vista, no matter what. But I love xp, and I have no problems with it. Only vista gives me a headache.

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.
I agree, Vista sucks. REP+

Well educated statement

Just because people don't know how to use Vista, doesn't mean it sucks.
