I'm speaking from experience! I don't go by word of mouth. By the way, after reading a few things, Vista isn't that bad, but it's still not great . It's the 3rd party support of drivers making it worse. Vista is running off of Beta Drivers still. Nothing to me has a great status of GM yet. I'm sure and hope, by SP1 we will see impressive drivers and a more stable Vista.
I agree with you there.
For example, my Creative Audigy 2 card barely functions with the drivers available...it's pathetic. When I listen to music or play games, the sound stutters every minute or so, causing my CPU usage to spike up to 100% and then back down. Needless to say, this has put a damper on my gaming and music listening. I think it IS important to note though that drivers are not Microsoft's fault, but the responsibility of the hardware vendor.
Needless to say I'm optimistic for SP1 and better driver development, and in turn more stability within the OS and applications.
Kaironxp, as for your latest response, I've got a similar computer to your specs and my performance is excellent. Not only that, but your opinion of AERO does not mean the Operating System is at fault. What does that say about your claims?
I guess Vista isn't for everyone--at least you gave it another try.
