i helped my yougner sister with setting up her new computer with vista. i couldn't stand it. it's like microsoft is trying more and more to "hold your hand" with every little aspect of a computer. they do more and more stuff "behind the scenes" while you're running your OS and leave less and less of it up to you. it's fine for old people who've never owned a pc and maybe like.. 11 year olds. but anything other than those two groups will eventually get annoyed. the reason i'm talking about this is because it seems there are already plenty of comments about the technical side of the two OSs, and i wanted to present a different viewpoint.

my recommendation would be neither of these two, but XP is the lesser of two evils in my opinion.

I have XP, while my bro has a 2000 :lol:.

Anyways, Vista is currently full of bugs to fix, so for now, XP is better.

Vista is absolutely horrible in the Corporate IT arena. The few brand new Vista laptops and desktops we deployed were not only a pain in the ass to set up but the users couldn't figure out how to use them, and many things just didn't work anymore. All the users complained so much, we took the computers back and upgraded them to Windows XP. Now everyone is working happily and efficiently again.

I use Vista. It sucks. It just looks pretty and all that jazz. I prefer XP.

XP. I'm using Vista and it's a neverending war betwean me and Windows. It's so full of bugs that it's hard to get anything done unless you only want to play games. Vista actually claimed to find a virus in my computer. The virus turned out to be "Kaspersky antivirus" software. I think that exemple shows just how incredibly uncooperative Windows Vista actually is.

I got both vista and xp but imo xp looks better and is easier for me to understand =D

xp was awesome until the new laptop i bought had vista pre-installed. i found that vista is pretty good compared to xp. the only thing that vista fails in is the backwards compatability of past programs and games. the os questioning you every movement can be disabled.
