    I use Windows Xp. It is very user friendly. Windows XP gives you the freedom to do what you want at home and at work—simply, reliably, and more securely.

    I hate when trash is dug up from years ago. XP is for the weak and Vista is for anyone looking towards the future.

    I would tend to disagree. I have a dual boot system set up as my primary at the house and I tend to use XP far more often than Vista, but to each his own. I tend to think of Vista as XPME. I'm hoping they do better next time around.

    For me, the major difference is the hardware run with Vista. I have always had issues with Vista and AMD while no problems with Intel and Vista. I also feel that trying to run Vista on anything older than 1 year is going to end up in a headache. Vista is no ME. M$ won't let that happen and considering we'll be lucky to see their next OS even hit beta by 2011, it's here to stay for awhile. I would never suggest anyone happy with XP to upgrade to Vista, but also would never suggest buying a new copy of XP for a new computer build. I would also say that Vista should have never been released in 32 bit form. Time to push the world to 64 bit so we can use these damn 64 bit parts properly.

    Sorry but for ever one person that doesn't think that Vista isn't another ME, there are 15 that think otherwise.

    I'm one of those 15 and the only reason that I have a Vista PC is so I can trouble shoot other peoples problems but other than that I'll stick with XP on my personal PC's as Vista is just an over bloated (Re; popular MEssII label) piece of wares and trying to move large files over a network is absolutely rediculous.

    In my opinion Dos is the best OS.

    I have to say Vista is the best OS Microsoft has ever created.

    Why well it was XP, but then I found out how buggy and how many glitches there are that you just don't find in Vista.

    I just can't believe people have so many problems with Vista. It has been rock solid for me and of course I have a new computer and it is way faster than XP ever has been.

    Less crashes, less spyware, more visual pop, faster response! IMO makes XP look bad.

    I am using Vista 64 bit with 2.5gig core 2 duo with 4 gigs of ram!

    Also the 64 bit works amazing with gaming to any other program I try to load on. It just works!
