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.

Registry Issues

It seems to me that most of the windows perfomance problems come from the registy becoming bloated. If you only install a couple of programs, you are usually ok. But if you install/uninstall and have tons of programs, windows seems to start to slow down. However, my Fedora Box, with tons of software installed (including mono stuff for f-spot) still runs as fast as the day it was installed. The same thing was true with my Fedora Core 4 install. Of course, my macintosh laptop still seems to run as good as is it did when I installed Tiger. YMMV
