    Have you tried Vista Business instead of Ultimate, I use it and love it? SP1 of course

    Other then that you may just have to wait for Win7 to be final, have you tried out the beta of that yet?

    I tried Vista Ultimate but cost is the thing in the end. I have a full copy of XP x64 and not of Ultimate. I tried ultimate for like 20 days and it was ok, a bit heavy in terms of memory usage imo.

    I agreed with you, I had before using Vista x64 over year then switch to xp x64, I said wow I noticed some area snappier, speed, files transfers flies unlike Vista x64 files transfers so poor even SP1 anyway.

    XP x64 sp2 is same code as Windows Server 2003 I think.

    I say XP x64 is superior and far better than both vista 32/64, that is my 2 cents.

    BTW, who cares Vista anymore ? Windows 7 is around the corner as Vista will be bite the dust just like old Window ME.
