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."

do you mean vista on that new 3gb quad core machine you've had to buy is faster than xp on your "old" pentium4, yeah as that's a fair comparison.

i've not come across a single fan of vista out of all the people i know who have bought a pc with it on recently - some have switched to linux, others have acquired xp, one even sent his vaio back and got a mac - they'd all laugh if you said vista was faster.
