      I'd keep it, now that SP1 is out it's a more stable OS. I've certainly never had any problems with it. Plus you get MCE on HP!!

      Surely you should be making your decision on your own experiences and which works better for you ? This is a bit like deciding which political party to vote on based on the pre election poll results rather than your own political beliefs - however each to their own.
      XP for me by the way - roll on SP3 - As PCFormat reports " blows vista away "

      Re: Should i keep Windows Vista H/P

      As Dholdi mentioned, Vista is a suck it and see O/S.

      You really have to install it, give it a try, and make your own decision on whether you like how it works.

      I've used 3 flavours of Vista, Home Basic, Business and Ultimate and I just don't like it, so I now only run XP on my machines - 1 laptop not counted as its not mine.

      To answer your question though, Vista ultimate, AMD 4400+ X2, with 3gb Ram 5300, X-fi xtremeGamer, and 700(ish) gb HDD's - and it still didn't work right

      Re: Should i keep Windows Vista H/P

      i have vista on new lappie [home premium] dont like it as much as xp,the main reason is vista runs everything when it starts and i mean everything so takes at least 3 times longer than xp just to start ,but i used Black Viper's Web Site and set up vista with most of his reccomendations and tweaks and tbh it now loads a lot better ,but will still use xp on my main pc as i find it better for gaming and doing what you want it to do rather than what it thinks i want it to do,
      lappie system 1 gig of ram ,
