Default windows Xp Vs. windows Vista

ok which is better windows xp or windows vista?

I'll start, in details/graphincs vista dominates xp but because of always asking what is allowed or not im taking the side of xp on simplicity.

anyone else want to put their opinion in?

Windows Xp if you want your 3d applications to run at full speed and you do not want DX10.

imho, vista is one hell of a nice piece of eyecandy.

Unfortunately, that's about all the good stuff I can say for it :P

Program functionality aside, it's a resource hog and consequently slower and less efficient than XP. The creators also seemed to decide that they would take everything that was once labeled and unlabel it, and then hide it somewhere else in the operating system.

Another vote for XP.Vista ain't bad but if you want all your applications to run faster,then it's XP which you should use.

XP, the only reason Vista was released is DX10 support.

XP as long as you dont need DirectX 10, Vista is another ME.

XP as long as it works better.
When XP came out, 98se was still better for gaming, but that changed with time. We can only hope Vista will get better, especially if we can't buy XP anymore.

With the number of people clinging to their xp, me included, microsoft will have to come up with some major updates or a new, more efficient os before the majority will make the switch...

On a side note, I met one person last weekend that considered himself a vista fanboy. I left that computer store about 1 minute later.
