I've used both, but I guess I'm still used to the old XP format. Vista is more neat graphically, but different in the way things are organized.

I say forget both of them and go with Mac OSX

Vista is crap. User Access Control is horrible software and should burn. Disable it and Vista is ok... but why would anyone want to downgrade?

I prefer XP cause its much easier to use, and its too much of a hassel to deal with Vista.

I'm beginning to hear some stories of people that upgraded to Vista, only to switch back to XP because they

1) hated Vista
2) Vista didn't work

Almost all programs/software if not all out now is compatible with vista. When vista was new most printers and stuff like that did not support it but now that is not the case.

PCWorld tested two similar models of a PC and a Mac and the Mac actually ran Vista faster than the PC!

Ubuntu is the better of the 3 if you ask me.

I have removed Vista from 6 laptops and 4 desktops for people that complained about Vista. Upgraded them back to XP

There is too much spyware that reports back to Microsoft, plus too much bloatware built into Vista. It's sluggish on the latest hardware. Ya, sure it has little bit more eyecandy, but XP does everything Vista does just faster. IMO, Microsoft pushed out a 'unneeded' operating system. Vista seems more like a downgrade rather than an upgrade. And don't even get me started with compatibility issues. Good luck finding drivers for your old hardware/printers.

It will frustrate you to no end. It's slow and has way too much hand holding built in that slows down performance. They also went overboard with the security features which also slows performance.

XP coupled with zonealarm and AVG is all the protection one needs.

I have heard that Windows 7 is Vista that works. I have stuck with Windows XP while I wait for Microsoft to release something better than Vista, which is a resource hog.

Vista just because it is user friendly and its nice that it ask you if your sure you want to do something because when i get going on this site i am liable to accidentally hit anything so when it ask me i deny so i dont mess nothing up
