    so see if "Vista Experience" base score would improve but primarily so GET
    better performance. My baseline score went from 2.0 (Video for Aero /
    Windows performance)
    to 3.6

    BUT better, for a 9yo box thats gone thru :
    WIN3.1/WIN95/WIN98/WIN98SE/WIN2000/WINXPPro

    with RAM upgraded and now video card and a USB2 port, now that I have solved
    my netwoking issue with my wifes XPPro PC (a simple firewall adjustment to
    OneCare firewalling!)...I can say...

    ....this thing flies pretty damn well!

    Vista or XP? NO CONTEST...

    VISTA

    Rgds and tks to all here that provided assistance and guidance on my
    networking issues! Much Appreciated

    Just what was it you did to "whack" your card. Earlier posts don't
    appear here.

    Comparing a used and probably damaged XP against a new install of Vista with
    completely different hardware configuration (Especially a video card with
    hardware acceleration) using just one benchmark is hardly a realistic
    assessment.

  5. So Charlie, are you saying that he really isn't happy? How would you know
    that?

  6. What is your reason for trying to make Vista look bad?

    Once again you are spouting off about a system you have no knowledge
    of...Unless you have specific proof that all xp boxes must be damaged if
    they are slower than Vista I say Do not make statements that you can not
    prove !!
