I Love Vista 7/10/2008 3:06:28 AM

Pros: From disc insertion to desktop took about 15 minutes (WAY faster than installing XP), found drivers for every component in my system (including 6 USB devices, one of which was my printer) right off the bat (I love not having to install the motherboard drivers off the CD), tons of useful built-in features that aren't found in XP, supports up to 128 GB of RAM, gets better every month.

Cons: UAC is annoying (though easily disabled), software/hardware compatibility not as good as XP (has improved drastically over the last 1.5 years and continues to improve w/ each passing month), still requires some tweaks to get rid of some annoyances (i.e. slow shutdowns).

Overall Review: Vista has really turned around since it was released and it is now what I would consider Microsofts best operating system at the moment (and in the near future). I wouldn't consider anything else for a new computer. I know there's a lot of Vista hate out there, but, for the record, I own 4 computers; 1 Vista-based gaming PC, 1 Vista-based laptop, 1 OS X 10.5-based iMac, and 1 XP-based media computer (which used to be my main computer). Based on long-term personal experience, I still say Vista is the best out of all 3.

Learn to upgrade! 5/11/2008 8:45:27 PM

Pros: Vista is what the new XP was 7 years ago. So my advice get over it, XP is going away and it is time to buy 2gb of ram and the matching stuff. When you give Vista the right mix it flies like a fighter jet. XP was the same way. The improvements are well worth the wait and it is easy to install for people who are trained Microsoft professionals. The cost of hardware is cheaper now than it was in 2001. You get what you pay for.

Cons: None, the best OS to date from Microsoft with antivirus blocking in conjunction with AMD and Intel CPUs. The article is on the AMD website. Way overdue.

Overall Review: If you disable the UAC most of your old software runs flawless. I am running 16 bit apps from 10 years ago with no issues. Most software companies don't have a clue about this. Most issues are with printers that have shoddy driver support.

Interesting 4/24/2008 8:41:58 AM

Pros: More graphically oriented than XP. Does some interesting things and fun to play with. Much better program than DOS.

Cons: Quirky to load initially with an unformated hard drive. Some third party programs just will not load. The business version won't run DVD movies unless you download a program from the net.

Overall Review: I tried to run with 1G of memory, it ran, but the hard drive was swapping continuously and WOW ran just ok with good hardware. Upgraded to 2G of memory and there was quit an improvement. Upgraded to 4G of memory and noticed no difference.

not easy to install 3/19/2008 9:01:37 PM

Pros: great when you get it goin. fast & easy to use, nicer than xp in my opinion.

Cons: took forever to figure out how to install it. millions of BSD

Overall Review: going from 32 bit vista to 64 bit vista. had the disk laying around for like a year. didn't know about the 3 gig ram problem. took me forever to figure it out without being able to get online and look it up. took a solid day and a half (eventually decided to test each ram stick by itself). downloaded the patch and finally got it goin and reading 4 gig ram.

Great new OS 3/13/2008 10:40:44 AM

Pros: Overall performance is improved. Support for modern and future hardware is incomparably better than XP's aging architecture. Too many seemingly small improvements to even cover.

Cons: People tend to think Vista is inferior to XP due to common negative remarks to EVERY Microsoft OS since Windows 95. I hate people talking bad about it when I heard the same remarks about Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP their first year on the market. Granted, Windows ME was bad.

Overall Review: If you have older hardware there's not much reason to upgrade, but please don't buy a new PC with XP because you have heard Vista is bad. The same arguments were made against XP because of the horrible incompatibilities and instabilities its first year out. Vista SP1 is now out and it is a very great OS.

Truth About Vista 3/4/2008 9:27:41 AM

Pros: Vista runs nice and smooth (especially with sp1).

Cons: Only con I can find is that people buy vista and put it on a 5yr old computer and cry cause it doesn't run correctly or is slow.

Overall Review: I've used vista business 64bit and 32bit with no issues. Being a newer os it still does have it querks. I've installed it on an old athlon 3200+ barton system with no problems at all.

even a skeptic loves it 2/26/2008 8:11:03 AM

Pros: I was so reluctant to "upgrade" to vista. But: everything worked out of the box. Games run no problem, Aero is nice and surprisingly unobtrusive. I haven't benched anything yet, but it certainly _feels_ faster.

Cons: I didn't upgrade sooner

Overall Review: running on: e6750(@3.2Ghz) + 4GB ddr2-800(@960) + evGA 8800gt 512MB

Absolute Trash 2/10/2008 4:22:26 PM

Pros: uh, looks prettier than XP?

Cons: Wow, where to start? I guarantee you you'll have at least one piece of hardware that will have serious compatibility issues regarding drivers that actually work properly. If you're building a budget system, beware b/c this is a resource hog.

In an attempt to make things easier to navigate through, Microsoft has achieved the exact opposite. It's overly complicated for computer savy people to tweak this OS.

Overall Review: Stay away from Vista people. It's really not worth the headache. XP worked fine and still works fine. I'm considering going back to XP.
