A cold day in hell.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have to downgrade from XP Pro x64 to Vista Ultimate x64 because XP does not support CFX with more than two GPUs, and Server 2008 x64 has numerous software incompatibilities (won't install/run on a server OS).

In my opinion, XP Pro 64 was the WORST OS ever released. I ditched it in less than two days. I'm not a fan of Vista, but at least it does not have the numerous incompatibilities that Pro 64 had.

I can't stand people saying that they are downgrading from XP to Vista, that was like the joke one and a half year ago... Vista is a lot better than you think.

Agreed. The problems with Vista have been long resolved, and now it's superior to XP in every aspect.

I agree, i like vista and think that if you have the hardware to support it you should definatly upgrade. I also had xp pro 64bit for over two years and never had any issue's with it. I liked it and recomended it to others who have yet to have problems with it. keep in mind xp's EOL is comming up and that new technology generally doesnt work with old os's.
