vista versus xp home

  peterwilliam 10:00 15 Sep 2007

I recently added a dual core cpu and a better graphics card to my computer and took the opportunity to buy an oem version of vista home premium. I now have a duel boot system. Vista is pretty but much slower than xp. I like the sidebar in vista but now I have got a similar sidebar in xp. I am finding it difficult to find any benefit of vista over xp so did I waste my money? Can anyone tell me how vista is better than xp?

All I can say is that Microsoft have extended the `life` of XP Pro with a new issue (for serial numbers only - the rest is the same) as a result of demand. Must mean something.

Loads of threads on here on XP vs Vista if u look. Like johndrew says, the extended life of XP which he refers to must say something...
