    dont get vista. its a waste of money. you'd be better of getting some smoke or pretty much anything. all thats improved is graphics. if you want graphics get a mac. They took 5 years to make vista. just some time ago they announced the next os in 2 years. just think about it. in 2 years vista is gonna be old again. and until then not many games are gonna be direct X10. so there is absolutely no reason to get it. do you even know what was upgraded in vista? nothing! a bit of 3d on your desktop ZOMFGZ0rs.

    Dont get it. send me the money.

    also the differences are something in the interface. im not sure which part. but nothing terribly important. if your going for the looks, get the upgrade.

    several things to note

    things still work properly in XP, driver support in vista cans tand some improvement, though it's ntoa s bad in previous launches.

    Vista requires about 50% mroe RAM to run like XP

    the "eye candy" is annoying. It looks like poorly designed ----. When/if I get vista, that' craps being disabled first thing.

    no, they took 3 years because they started over halfway through that 5 year period.

    and basically the largest changes are the OSes kernel and the OSes memory pref etching behavior.

    but it's a horid waste if you are just getting it for the eyecandy

    especially if youbuy home basic as it has the eye candy disabled
    (they want you to pay more money for that)


    Essentially buying vista is like paying money to be anal rammed with restrictive DRM "protective features" in short, you're legally purchased media might not work how you want it to anymore

    I highly suggest clicking this link

    based on what I've seen here, it will keep you far more entertained that vista's GUI will

    and let me reiterate, home basic DOES NOT INCLUDE AERO

    Secondly, there have been quite a few errors, especially with upgrading.
