Benchmarks "After a disappointing showing by Windows Vista SP1, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that Windows XP Service Pack 3 (v.3244) delivers a measurable performance boost to this aging desktop OS. Testing with OfficeBench showed a ~10% performance boost vs. the same configuration running under Windows XP with Service Pack 2."

Although Vista is usually slower, they should have compare speed on system with 2GB o'ram - Vista struggles with one lonely gigbayte ;)
Looking at DDR2 price there's no reason to buy system with 1GB or less memory. 2GB DDR2 laptop memory for 45 euros...

About XP update - nice, but I don't think it will work 10% faster on my PC, optimized for XP speed anyway ;) Let's wait.

I know people, liking Vista much more than XP - my daughter for example ;) And she's using it without a problem.
