Wow very interesting and with screenshots. Vista has lost it i think lol.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">VISTA has rather an illogical performance rating tool. It tests some of your computer subsystems and gives you a total score that can give you an indication whether or not your machine is fit for Vista. It gives you a "score" called Windows Experience Index (WEI). If we were on the planet Vulcan someone would be shot for this performance rating system as Microsoft will super confuse people with it.<br>
In our first test equipped with Athlon 4000+ a single core CPU clocked at 2.4 GHz and 1 MB cache memory, two times 512 MB OCZ PC 4800 Elite platinum edition, 250 GB Western digital 8 MB cache drive and Gainward 7800 GTX card, Asus A8N SLI motherboard and Creative Labs X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card we scored 4.2 score.<br></td>

All of it here people : <a href="http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=35078" target="_blank">http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=35078</a>

I get a 5.3, but what's funny is is it doesn't do a perfect 6, so the highest score I can get in certain parts is a 5.9.<br><br>
4.3, and 5.3, aren't a bad score on a scale from 0-5.9, which is what they're using...so the inq can eat it.
