What do I think?
A nerve for everyone(sometimes)
Many programs don't support Vista.
Examples: Nero, my modem-telephone, PHP
A very good OS
Good graphics, good themes, good "stuff."
Too much Controls
Many, many, many account controls. I mean,"Hello, account controls in XP is enough already!"
It has all it needs to protect itself. The only thing missing is the anti-virus.
What do I think?
Super DANGER ZONE
Most viruses and dangerous trojans can infiltrate a Windows XP Installation!
So be careful!!!!!
Much BETTER in Controls
Prone to Systematic Bugs
Many XP's encounter system-changing bugs, such as the kb307545.
Very wide Compatibility
Most programs, except for some created originally for Vista, supports Windows XP
Vista's advantages are clearly in its redesigned security system and better SMP and 64-bit support. It's disadvantage is in it being a hog for resources and some compatibility issues (which I have yet to run into one that I can't circumvent).
XP's advantage is in it's speed and compatibility but is a nest for exploits and security issues compared to Windows Vista.
Another thing about Vista is that it has constant patches compared to Windows XP which doesn't get patched that much frequently. Another thing people overlook is that Windows Update is now actually built into the system instead of requiring you to go to Windows Update's website to get the update. This makes it so much safer since some people still remember the day when someone cracked into the website and starting to employ virus codes into the update system. No further attacks can be made since it's now embedded into the system.
nice to meet you all,,
just give my view about my experiment using Vista,,
vista is the best after all depends Xp,,
but also there are disadvantages,,
like not all software can be installed in Vista,,i dont know why,,
n then if we want to install every software or system, it will be blocked by pop up..it makes time delay,,although only 2 seconds,,
but it breaks our mood,,hahaha,,
and then the fitur and setting is really different with XP,,we must provide our leisure time to learn back Vista,,
like "run",,we only use it using key in our keyboard,,,etc,,
but the advantages is there is no virus right now in Vista,,one day,,i try to make autorun virus in Vista,,but it didn't make effect at all,,
and the security,,i guess it provide best security ever than other windows,,
- Safe as hell as long as you use the right tools (I have NEVER had a virus on my computer !)
- Fast and tweakable
- Huge support available
- Easy to use (for me)
Vista Home Premium
- Same thing about safety as in XP
- Slow, but partially tweakable
- Too much annoying features, but they are disableable
- lots of new and handy features
- supplied WMP11 is crap
I'm no windows fanboy nor a linux fanboy. I'm an open minded person who knows that every OS has it's advantages and disadvantages and that we'll have to learn to live with them (or at least try to patch them a bit ).
On the other hand I find Vista so much more reliable on other aspects such as stability. Wouldn't be surprised others would state the opposite when compatibility problems take their toll on that aspect.
vista is so cool, and i love aero!
i dont really have anything good to say about xp though.
XP can be just as safe as Vista, if you take good care of it, and follow common sense security procedures. Then I've found XP to be more stable, faster running, and easy to configure and modify to suit your needs.
For me, the bottom line is: For a computer idiot, or in a comparision of clean installed XP vs. Vista, Vista is the OS of choice. It doesn't leave you room to make many mistakes. For those who know what they're doing, XP still has the upper hand over Vista.
Vista, on the other hand has a lot of security and is useful for "games for windows"
Thanks, but the best version is XP. If you are planning on buying a new computer, wait for Windows 7 to come out in January 2009. It's the next version of vista but has better qualities.
Best regards~ Sachin

I have used both the OS but accoding to my point of view Xp is far far better than Vista.
Vista you will get nice looks and little bit added feature like ( switch between windows I mean in Vista home premium . Only good thing abot Vista is booting is very fast and network security is more.
There are so many compatibilty issue with installing s/w in Vista.
I will prepare you guys to install Xp rather than Vista . Vista is not a upgrade rather you can say its degrade . You can say I want to upgrade Vista to Xp to resolve many issues .. M I right ??? I belive I am right except on view of all the user rather than Mirosoft ..
Hope Windows 7 full version will have all the facilities and all the good advantages ...
