XP is MUCH better than Vista. Vista is ME to XP's 98 SE. And those Mojave commercials were concocted to make MS look good. Many people still resent MS for making DX10 a requirement in Vista and the original intent to discontinue OpenGL compatibility. I would NEVER get Vista, and my computer is only a year old. Windows 7-- maybe. As a general rule, never "upgrade" to the next OS, but always skip a generation. This is good strategy for other electronics as well, such as computer hardware, digital cameras, etc.
BTW here's my current config: Q6600, 8800GTS 640MB SSC, 2GB DDR2 Im perfectly happy with XP. My rule with OS's is "be seen and not heard." Who the hell cares about all those stupid extra features of Vista, when an OS main job is just to remain stable, not use resources that arent vital, or the extra flash which is totally unnecessary. MS wised up and knows most people dont like and dont want Vista. Anyone saying "people are following the herd" is just plain ignorant-- many of us tried Vista-- and REJECTED it. MS go back to the drawing board and get it right next time and try not to be so greedy and force stuff down people's throats that they dont want or need.
The Rejection of Vista is a great victory by the people against tyrannical corporate monopolies
This is a great moment in history!
