My main problem with Vista is mainly that, for no reason I could see, Direct 3D completely stopped working for me at one point, and couldn't be fixed short of reinstalling the entire operating system.  I reinstalled the programs, the video drivers, directX, e.t.c all with no effect.  It was like my computer just decided that my video card wasn't capable of rendering 3D anymore, but when I installed Windows 7 on a separate partition it had no such problems.

XP is a faster OS, but Vista looks better. Windows 7 looks even better than Vista and is as fast or maybe even faster than XP. On the computer I use at home I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, which is running great.

I wonder what it would be like running Windows 1 on my quad-core computer I have at home, lolz.

I don't think it would even be capable of using more than 1 of the cores.

I guess it indeed won't be able to use all 4 of the cores. But even if it uses just 1 core, then it's already gonna be fast. My quad-core is clocked to 3.2 GHz (no OC, because then I start getting BSODs), so even if it uses 1 core, then that core is gonna be on 3.2 GHz.

Btw, I meant Windows 1, not Windows 3.1. Don't say there never was a Windows 1, because there was. Search it up on YouTube. Windows 1 was not available to the public back then, only for the offices etc.

My dad actually once had to use like 15 floppies to install Windows 3.1 on one of the first laptops. But it was really cool @#$% back then.

Recently there have been problems on the laptop in the house, its running Vista and when Thunderbird is open to look at Email, the mail is gone. I have never seen problems like this on any other computers I have, they are running XP.

I would pick XP over Vista. There are less problems that come around with XP, its is faster, and takes up less space.

I agree, if the challenge is between XP and Vista, but if you wanna have the performance of XP and the looks and feel of Vista, then take Windows 7, really.

Windows 7 has a much better performance than Vista and that is pretty much what matters to me. So: Window 7 > XP > Vista.

I'll be getting a new compy in a couple months - I'll get it as my OS.  I've grown familiar with Vista's layout, so that should be good.  I've actually been able to avoid most of Vista's problems - well, save it being a memory hog.

How bad is Win7 on the system's resources?

Ooh, maybe I should get Windows 7... Of course, that would mean that I have to save all of my stuff on discs, and then reinstall everything, which would take too much time.

I suppose I can find out later then.

Have a nice day.
