vista is a resource hog. remember, it is new and has bugs to be worked out.
also, u could have a better computer with the one running xp?

I would think different computers have different startup programs, so you could have more w/ your Vista computer. I use to be an avid WinXP Pro user and swore by it. I didn't get Vista until it came with my newest laptop which runs Vista64, I've since then started to forget WinXp :P

Upto my knowledge Vista requires twice the computing power and resources to operate at a performance level similar to that of Windows XP..RAM is the main problem Vista as it requires 2GB or more of memory and requires compatible flash drive or flash card...
