xp! I'm an aesthetically challenged cheapo who likes him his RAM (I mean c'mon, Office 07 looks 'prettier', but I downgraded to 03 once I realized it'd take me an eon to learn how to do anything in it). Guess it depends on your tastes and what you're looking to get out of your comp though.

Thanks. I was already leaning towards XP because it's what my old comp uses and I'm familiar with it.
Xp-1 Vista-0 any more opinions?

Like my friend told me when I got my laptop. As much as Vista is hated, it will eventually become the standard for everything. XP will die out and Vista will become the standard compatibility for new programs. Just how things work.

So you can go XP now, but you still have to be prepared to go Vista eventually

Go Vista now, with the new machine. "Upgrading" to Vista from XP can be a major pain in the ass. You're gonna do it eventually, you might as well learn it while adapting to the new machine

Peace,

I would also get Vista now. Eventually you will have to get it, and like Dave said, you might as well get used to it now. I like office 07 better, once you figure out where everything is, it's actually much better than office 03.

XP.

XP.



And.....XP!


You don't NEED to move on to vista, which sucks. It's like trading your trained dog for a dead squirrel.

People still use Windows 98, so i don't see why you shouldn't use XP.
XP runs games better
XP is faster

and you can mod xp, i've it modded and it doesnt look bad AT ALL

i'll take a screen of my comp just for you to see. i keep it simple and clean.

Default Re: Buying a new computer soon: Vista vs XP?

XP XP XP XP XP.

DON'T GET VISTA!!!#@@#!!!~

I'd at least wait until service pack 2 or 3 before making the switch... in XP I get a bluescreen of death maybe once every two months, in vista it was twice a day. I've had problems with drivers, games, and programs not working the way they're supposed to.. I've had features I used &quot;taken away from me&quot; due to the way vista has DRM built right into the very core of the OS, you simply cannot do a lot of the things you can do in XP. HD video is downsampled on vista, so no matter what, if you have vista, the high def movies you paid extra for, will look like crap so that you don't pirate them. I have two monitors, and I wanted to span my desktop across them so I could play games using more than one monitor... you can do this in XP, you can do this in f**ing windows 95... but you can't in vista and you never will be able to, since it &quot;makes it easier for people to break copyrights&quot; (though the pirates have always had a million ways around such things, it continues to inconvenience the regular people)... Or like, my sound card, since the manufacturer of my sound card doesn't feel like giving microsoft an extra $100,000 to recertify their driver, you can not and will never be able to use that sound card in vista. It works fine in xp and since their infrastructures are similar enough they wouldn't even have to rewrite the driver, it already works in vista... but since they won't pay ms its extortion fees they aren't allowed to sell their product.
Or, let's say you need to find help for a program that came out a year ago, well vista has thrown out its help system for no reason (ms's reasoning is that &quot;we haven't improved it in a while so we'll get rid of it despite millions of programs depending on it&quot... so if you try to click the help button in any program you'll get a message saying you're out of luck... if you go to MS's website and track down the problem in their knowledgebase they give you a link where you can write to microsoft and request this help system that's been in every single operating system since windows 2.0, but they won't let you have it by default. Good job ms, you saved 200kb out of a 20GB install.
A number of very large companies have gone as far as to boycott vista, such as IBM for example, who even though they helped write parts of vista, they feel it is too buggy and unstable and so much of a failure that they will *never* use it on *any* of their corporate computers.

End rant.

Vista will slow your computer to a crawl and it's buggy and unstable. Stick with XP.

Default Re: Buying a new computer soon: Vista vs XP?

Yeah, I guess my post wasn't quite the best thought out since I can switch my comp to vista or XP whenever I feel like without paying a cent *. When money comes into it though, I guess paying for XP could be a dumb option since there's a decent chance you'll someday come across software that'll force you to pay for the upgrade anyway. On the other hand, the unwillingness to upgrade to vista from XP is pretty common it seems, and perhaps companies will be smart enough to know they won't get away with making things only vista-compatible.

In any case, I really hog RAM so I need XP instead of Vista. On a good day my taskbar is 3-4 rows high. I'm using all the RAM a 32 bit can support and I still have to reboot all the time because I keep running out. I'm not exactly typical in that way though, so depending on how you want to use your computer, vista may be better for you.

Not on topic, but in response to what Even Horizon said: Also yeah I guess Office 2007 may have much better functionality - it just really pissed me off that I couldn't understand how to use any of it. In a period of just 3 days of work, I spent over 2 solid hours trying to figure out how to do simple tasks that were intuitive in all versions of Office I'd used before, and I still had some very critical problems unresolved. I simply can't afford that type of learning curve when Office 2003 works perfectly well for me. Perhaps when someone keys me into something I just have to have that's unique to 07, I'll upgrade back but otherwise I'm gunna be stubborn and stick to what gets the job done better for me (XP to Vista, Office 03 to 07, heck, even Age of Empires 2 to 3 hehe. They're all MS upgrades I've tried and that ultimately made me appreciate the older version more).

and PS: Don't listen to me... no I mean it! *;D I probably rank in the bottom 10th percentile here for computer literacy.

Default Re: Buying a new computer soon: Vista vs XP?

I have a computer that can take Vista, and ever since I got it (6 months ago) I haven't had so much as a crash, BSoD, or any sort of failure. I'm a lucky duckie, aren't I.

I will admit it does use a lot of ram.... I'm only using FireFox, Paint.NET, Windows Live and a few background programs (virus, firewall) and I'm using a gig of ram!

The only thing I wish I had in Vista that was in xp is the ability to set animated .gifs as your wallpaper. It sucks so such that I can't do that now.

You will need to make the switch sometime, but you don't have to yet. I say go xp.

Ok XP it is then. I think I'll wait until my next comp upgrade in 3-4 years before I get Vista. By then most of the glitches should be fixed.
