    Lol stories like these are creepy....

    people are paying whatever it takes to get new comptuers with the last
    copies of XP around...

    I wont say a price, but some people are selling computers with XP on them
    for multiple times
    the cost XP nomally costs!

    The prices are going up for this classic gem,
    because the alternative is getting vista....

    HA! And we all know what that means... HEY! No we dont! Some actually like
    the creepy crawler.

    Guys its slow... its very slow... its unstable, it acts funny, it behaves

    Yesterday I got white screen all over the desktop shading everything saying
    that that white sceen that shades normally is for applications, not for all
    of windows!

    Ive been hacking at the services trying to streamline the darn thing so it
    will work.. its like putting a rino on diet...
    it just doesnt work guys!

    I see it in the near future..sealed copies of XP pro selling on ebay for
    2000 -3000 dollars...

    PEOPLE ARE DEMANDING XP, and are frustrated with vista!

    Its true, and its happening.... and I told you so!

    Hmmm, I have an extra copy of XP Pro. I guess I'll wait about a year and
    then cash in.

    Pee nuts,

    Yes there is a connection, dumbbell...

    first Vista acts like a horse that's been dead for a week,

    then I try to rectify the monstrosity by making it liter..(lighter)

    I know what I am doing..

    I wish I could say the same for the guys that built the darn thing!

    Obviously the two can be related. But Vista is slow out of the box.
    As for unstable, acts funny, behaves strange, that says diddly.
    I haven't experienced any instability other than the 1st 2 weeks. M$ worked out
    those bugs with fixes.

    Though it still wanders off in [not responding], and I can make that happen at
    will. Had to really be beating on XP to get that happen. I can get it to happen
    while writing this. But it eventually catches up and recovers. It just takes
    awhile = SLOW to respond.

  7. They don't have to pay top dollar.. both Dell and HP produce some good value
    business boxes supplied with XP SP2..

    Exactly the same here. Vista is fast as lightening, and I'm not even
    using latest hardware (P4 @ 3giga, 1GB RAM, nVidia GeForce7). I think
    most of these people moaning about Vista have never used it, or they
    are using pirated versions (i.e. ripped off old beta releases) and are
    only here for the troll.

    Vista is slow out of the box.

    Slow? I wouldn't have thought so, please post your benchmark test
    results showing speed difference between Vista and XP on the same

    In order to that he would actually have to load Vista on a computer and
    use it.

    We all knew he had no idea what he was talking about, I just thought
    I'd let him dig his hole a little deeper.

  16. Read your Vista EULA. I thought that Microsoft stipulates you can't
    benchmark Vista.

    Exactly the same here. Vista is fast as lightening, and I'm not even
    Not me. I have a legal version of Vista Ultimate on an Intel DG965WH mobo
    Core 2 Duo 6700, 4 GB dual channel RAM. MCE 2005 runs circles around Vista.
    I still use Vista, though. It's improving all the time.

    He picked the wrong side .. and is hurt .. flailing out :)

    for stability

    XP is good
    Windows 2000 was better
    XP benefitted from 5 plus years of being around

    Vista is already better and its been around officially for a bit over three

    it just takes some more time than other to get up to speed.

    Vista = 16 seconds to load Adobe photoshop 9.
    XP = 3 seconds. same program.
    That's SLOOOOOWer
    2 gigs ram Vista 1 gig ram XP.
    this Vista goes off in [not responding] when ever.
    It's memory management is worse than XP's. I give it 2 gigs of ram, and it fails to SHARE it efficiently.

    I was asking for valid benchmarks, not home made opinions. Please post
    giving benchmarking program(s) used and full test data.
