Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

I like XP better. Vista has serious compatability issues and I hate what they have done to the start menu. Besides, Vista is for beginners. But I like the graphics.

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

It seems that Windows Vista never really took off in the first place. Most companies would be very careful when changing their operating system (because it is very expensive and present security issues). Truth is, Windows Vista was not quite as stable a version as WIndows XP, and companies refused to migrate.
it will be very interesting to see what will happen with Windows 7; one of the foreseeable problems is that its pricing is quite high, and a lot of computer manufacturers might prefer to equip their hardware with cheaper operating systems in order to guarantee their levels of sales and thus their profits margins ... personally I'll stay on Windows XP until I am convinced that any other version of Windows does a better job (or until I eventually decide to move to Linux altogether).

Yeah, I've been using Vista for 2 years now, and Vista sucks. XP dominates!

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

My experience at work has been that people who have only used XP hate Vista, but once they actually use it they tell me that Vista's great. Apparently Microsoft really flubbed the marketing...

Well, Vista is not too bad, but I think XP is a little bit better somehow, IMO.

I've removed viruses from Vista, and it's not as easy as removing them in XP.

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

The company I am working for is currently switching from WIndows XP to WIndows Vista ... which might seem surprising considering that support for Windows Vista will probably become minimal (if not discontinued) as soon as Windows 7 gets adopted. Microsoft is probably offering hard discounts on Windows Vista licenses ...

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

Now that Windows 7 is out, do you like XP or Windows 7?

Sid, it seems like you've already ruled Windows Vista out of the race

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

Between XP and Vista, I prefer the Vista.
Reasons:

The XP has good connectivity, is compatible with many programs, has as many themes (the graphics is by your choice) And much more.
But has much problems too, like virus, trojans, has not support with Microsoft (now), and so much reasons.
I'm not saying that the Vista has no such problems too, but (for me) has a nice technical support.

But XP and Vista isn't perfect Sistems, like Snow Leopard for MAC (of Apple), Ubuntu (linux) or Kurumin (linux)

But, I don't know what programms do you will use!

Well, yeah. There's no way it can compete with Windows 7 (although some people still prefer it over XP).

So does Linux. Anyhow, if you know how to work with your computer or your system doesn't have very many problems (as is the case with XP), you don't NEED to call technical support.

Re: Which OS do you prefer between XP and Vista?

I have been starting to use Windows Vista (consistently) just a week ago or so because my company decided to migrate from Windows XP to Vista (which might seem weird, but they porbably received a huge discount on the Vista licenses in order to do this). On the whole, I don't notice any major improvement in Vista, but I can tell that Vista is a real power hog ... I hope that Microsoft really sorted out this issue with Windows 7. One of the good things, though, is that Vista seems to boot rather quickly.
