It's worth installing if it really gives a couple more fps in COD4 :D

They are Windows 2.03 applications.

To all that say XP Rocks: youre all passing one fact over...

Vista uses DX10 (better gfx)
and XP uses DX9!

no shit xp will have better results, the graphical quality is less and therefore the cards arent put under as must stress...

but w/e i moved on from XP a while back and ill never rever to that... its like going back in time... never.



whoa...... thats incredible.... to bad i already had to get a new computer that already had vista lol, but i like vista better anyway so :P

sure vista is good , shell down big bucks for performance that you could have bought in cheaper hardware or with your existing hardware. ppl wake up , yes i understand vista is good with visuals ,now don't tell me its good with games . think of it this way if you had the hardware that you use for a normal vista home premium system and had xp or any other os as a matter of fact , you'd run the same games far more better then in vista and in high settings .

i know os's need time to get it right even xp had too but if it is bloated to the core what can you do it , but leave it , look for alternatives .i see ppl talking about dx 10 ,have you heard there ppl that are working to get that dx 10 to work in xp too .

The test results from Adrian Kingsley-Hughes's blog:

Only COD4, F.E.A.R. and Oblivion perform better on Vista.

But alot of games and programs aren't ready for Vista yet either. I have vista, looking to duel boot XP, until they tweak Vista up better :)

my point is,

GO XP!! :woot:

@xAce0fSpadeZx
Can you tell me a single game or program whose latest version isn't compatible with Vista?

This comment would probably have been more fitting in a non-gaming thread.... :rolleyes:


As it stands in this context, that was one heck of a stupid comment.

Well, you can run Games with Linux, but that is something more complicated in most cases because of the DirectX.

But why do you guys always conflict about XP and Vista? Windows should be completely replanned and rebuild but that is not going to happen! They should be ashamed that it is normal to use an Antivirus on their OS but this has gotten usual to Windows users so better argue about that and not is Xp better than Vista or is Vista better than XP.

Who cares? Both are unsecure!

Place OS X into the position of marketshare that Windows has, and watch viruses and malware flock to it, to the point that both antispyware and antivirus will need to be run...

Same with Linux.

The a-holes that design this garbage target where the most damage is done, and if its not Windows, then its not popular enough to pay attention to.

That said, OS X is not terribly secure out of the box. Incorrectly configured Linux is just as bad as Windows. THe worst security risk to an OS is not the OS itself, but the idiot user behind the keyboard.

that is definately not true!

You didn't work on any *nix system right? If you had you had noticed that you have to put you admin password in if you wan't to do anything that goes deeper in the System. So if a program that is stored in your temp-directory asks you for admistrative privileges, than you should notice that because it shows you the path to the program.

Ok, if you login as root than you have a more insecure OS than Windows but that is disabled in the most *nix systems so this is no problem. :whistle:

But I didn't want to start another OS-War-Tread but I wanted to mention that Windows is in both Versions too insecure, that is a fact nobody can't deny! :devil:

I've been using nix for the last two years. You? Because it sounds like to me that you are limiting your experience to Noobuntu. Root most certainly is NOT disabled on most nix systems.

*Thinks back to the hack contest where OS X fell first*

Anyway...once again, any improperly setup OS is insecure.
