Windows With Vista, Microsoft is addressing what's become a sad truth for most people: PCs run more slowly over time. Vista will automatically de-fragment hard disks, make better use of memory to more quickly load programs, and include a new performance control panel that will identify performance bottlenecks, according to the company. Elsewhere, ActiveWin hosts widescreen, high-res screenshots of Vista.

It is not PC getting slower but new Windows versions getting more bloated and slower. This is a pity attempt of Microsoft to blame PCs for the excruciatingly slow speed of Vista. Shame on them. I am so glad I use Linux which is blazing fast on any PC.

Please get your facts straight. You can say all you want about Microsoft and Windows, but *not* that Windows XP is more demanding than a modern Linux distribution. Windows XP can even "run" on a 32MBRAM 20Mhz (yes, 20) Pentium! Proof:

I'm getting really tired of this argument. Windows XP and especially 2000 run very well even on low-end machines. Claiming otherwise is a blatant sign of zealotry.
