    I did several Internet download/upload speed test using to
    www.speedtest.net on a dual boot PC with Vista Ultimate X64 and XP
    ProSP2 X64.

    Here are the averages for 6 complete tests on each OS.

    1) Vista 5725 down 485 up.
    2) XPPro 5699 down 431 up.

    Vista is definitely faster!

    Vista may have passed the Internet download upload test, but with opening
    applications, moving files and a few other tasks, Vista is slower. This may
    change when the SP1 comes out.

    Vista has a much larger core than XP and millions of lines of code that XP
    doesn't have so not all functions will be faster with Vista.

    =============================

    My observation is Vista works really well on a very fast processor and gobs
    of memory. If you use a machine two or three or more years old with a 2.4ghz
    or 2.8ghz processor and 1 gig of ram, Vista just bogs down. Also, one should
    have fast disk drives.

    I am running Vista Ultimate; first tried the o/s on two different computers
    one of 2003 vintage the other 2005 vintage, and had nothing but problems.
    Gave up bought a shiny new 2007 E7oo Acer Aspire with an Intel 6600 quad
    core 2.4ghz processor, 4gigs of ram dual channel, two SATA II HDs, a Nvidia
    8800 GTS 320 ddr megs ram, 750 watt p/s and Vista runs like a dream.
    Connected to a extreme speed cable system and get 9800+ downloads and 800
    uploads.

    Bought my son a dyi system AM2 mb, 4gigs of ram dual channel, SATAII hds,
    450 p/s, ATI 1950 video with 256 mb ram, and it too runs Vista Home premium
    like a dream with uploads/doneloads slightly slower.

    I despised Vista when running on the older computers however clearly Vista
    shines on up to date equipment.

  4. Such a "test" doesn't mean sh*t you foolish little monkey.

    Vista is slower for some application since the driver's aren't tuned
    yet. True Vista CAN be faster for some things, but clearly not all and
    in fact is SLOWER for many as people that actually know what they're
    doing have proved over and over if you actually know how to test and
    where to find the results they've had. A Microsoft butt kissing moron
    like you has no idea how to test or how to analyze test results. All
    you're good for is throwing your feces around and making an ass of
    yourself daily.

    0.45% faster. There's the WOW!! Not.

    In some circles that would be called statistically insignificant.

    Oh, you're being sarcastic, right?
