I LOVE vista for that! Nearly ALL hp's and other mainstream printers work right after being plugged in
. Also, I went back to xp for fun a few weeks ago, and I WILL be back in vista probably tomorrow. A few things that royally piss me off in xp are
1. image viewer - XP's viewer is epic fail, zooming 3+ mb images takes about 10 seconds, which makes no sense. They are on a raid 5 partition and my pc does jack squat as far as cpu/hdd when zooming, thus proving that xp blows.
2. Snipping tool - speaks for itself, saves probably 10 mins a day when having to open paint and save a file every time vs clicking once to take a SS.
3. apps crash far more often in XP and can't recover as they always do in vista. This goes for drivers as well, which is VERY important.
4. How the moving of files works / explorer in general is far improved and works better.
I am sure there are more reasons but this is just a consolidated list. Only reason to run xp is for benchmarking, or if you can't afford it.Edited by Xecuter2 - 7/10/08 at 10:21pm
