Be very careful though as it can in rare cases screw up your pc, it should be ok if you have everything backed up so you wont lose anything.

I've long preferred XP in Classic form, never mind Vista...:-)

Ignore XP and go for Vista.

Those who criticise it the most have never used it from the posts I have read on this site.

Ignore Vista and keep XP it seems that unless you have a very modern computer with bags of memory and don't want to use older games then the Micro$oft bloat wear Vista may appeal to you.

After all the problems I have known friends and others have with their computers after installing Vista most of them have reverted to XP. I for one will not be giving Uncle Bill any of my hard earned cash, unless I land up buying a computer with it already installed. Even then I would still be thinking about asking about having XP on it instead of Vista. Aside from the fancy look of Vista, which I am not keen on I don't see the need to spend money on something that is not necessary.

To think that Vista is about appearance is a complete misunderstanding of what it is about. Fine make it look like Vista if you like but it's rather akin to putting a cardboard mould around a fiesta to make it look like a Porche.

Migwell, you have demonstrated my earlier comment, I see you have not used it.

have you had a look at this weeks PCA pole. Speaks volumes in it's self.
