Upgraded to XP
I gave Microsoft until SP1 for vista, I tried to like it, but lets count the annoyances.
SLOW, even with all the twaddle turned off.
2 minutes to boot, five before wireless would connect.
Disk copy at a snails pace.
12 minutes to write a one gig usb 2.0 jump drive
10 gig restore partition.
10 gig win sxs folder
being repeatedly told "you need permission to do that" on my explicative deleted computer even after turning UAC off.
Now I'm running XP
Fast 45 seconds from power on to connected to the network
7 gigs total install
2 minutes to copy one gig to a jumpdrive.
Make the upgrade, it's worth it.
