If I like chocolate and you like vanilla thats a difference of opinion. Vista being a bloated unstable OS thats not as good as XP at this point is fact. I'm still not sure why you are trying to insult me but if if it makes you feel better about Vista to each his own.....lol

So if you actually met someone in person you would be nice and civil to them.

When you meet someone online though you try and abuse the crap out of them!

Lovely double standards there!

I always try to be be nice and civil in person or online. Sorry if you feel abused Dipper.
If I met someone that had no issues with Vista I would love to see their system and software that they are running.

But you have never asked me (or AFAIK anyone else on this list that likes Vista) why I like Vista, how I have it running, tweaks etc. You have just toally ignored people who run and use Vista and claim Vista is crap.

Compared to Xp it is crap. XP is faster , more stable, takes up less space, and at this point has far less issues.
Good point. Why do you like Vista? what makes it better than XP? What features does it have that makes it worth the $400-500 price tag? What can I do on a Vista machine that I can not do on an XP machine?

Well said Dipper.

As to Vista costing $300-$400 that is a joke? I can buy all the Vista Business Premium I want for $120. I forgot what cost on Vista Ultimate was but only a little more. For $399 I can get a complete new computer running Vista with monitor!

Vista Ultimate $319.99 newegg.com a lot more at the local shops.

I'm still waiting on answers to all my questions.

What? no answers yet? Maybe you forgot the simple questions I asked. Seeing as how you and your friend NWPhotog love Vista so much you would think one of you could tell me why Vista is better. My questions are:

Why do you like Vista? what makes it better than XP? What features does it have that make it worth the high price tag? What can I do on a Vista machine that I can not do on an XP machine?
You were all upset that I did not ask these questions of a "happy vista user" so I'm asking.

Man Gunslinger you are so freaking funny! Do you think any of us are going to bother after page after page of chest thumping, brow beating, and bullying? LOL!

" chest thumping, brow beating, and bullying?"
I don't recall doing any of those things. The reason why you wont answer my questions is because you are wrong, and you know it. You know full well there is no reason to upgrade to Vista at this point. You know why you can't tell me why Vista is better than XP? Because its not, and you can't prove that it is. You also know you can not prove that Vista is faster than XP on the same hardware because its just not.
I started this post to explain why I was leaving Vista and going back to XP. Then you and Dipper came in to basicly tell me that it was all my fault that Vista wont work right. If you cannot back up your arguments with facts you have no argument.
