don't make blanket statements about products you are not actually using....
I have not had a single issue with any game or application I am currently running. Also, I have found current drivers for all of my hardware.
I am by no means in love with XP, I run vista on two of my systems as well.
It wasn't a blank statement. I don't have to be using it right this moment to make a statement about it. Vista x64 is superior to XP x64. I used XP x64 for years until September when I moved to Vista x64. I didn't say there were any driver problems. I said there are numerous problems with that release, and it's by no means as stable as Vista x64. It's not a bad OS, I use it before I use XP x86.
Driver support was flawless for me, but there are a heap of problems with it, most behind the scenes with structures. It was just too released for 64 bit technology. I'm not even sure if it's still supported fully, but I never said it was awful, I just said it wasn't as good as Vista x64.
