Windows "Unlike previous Microsoft operating systems, Windows Vista is pretty streamlined right out of the box. It makes terrific use of a system's resources, but it's built as much for pretty looks and increased stability and security as it is for horsepower. It's time now for a course of action that will take the ball and chain off this baby and let it fly. The ink on Windows Vista's EULA is barely dry, so it's very likely that more speed tips, registry hacks, and deep settings will be revealed in the weeks, months, and years to come. For now, here's our set of tweaks that can help you turn up the throttle on your new operating system."

Member since:

the only thing vista has going for it is DX10 and that could have been backported

No it couldn't. DX10 relies on Vista's new WDDM driver model, which is fundamentally different than 2000/XP's WDM. It makes no technical or economical sense to backport such a major new OS part to older version.
