    All other software must change or not? if no need to change... after many people Beta it and see no problems, I am likely to go for it... at least those machine that support it.

    i have been using the windows vista since it was first launch, and i join in as a registered beta tester under microsoft new product category.

    My only grump with it is that Nvidia geforce cards does not work very well as the WHQL kernel drivers are not complete, meaning the Vista OS does not register the card GPU temperature, also does not allow changes and access to the GPU clock frequencies. At times, GPU will just overheat because it uses plenty of render pipes causing GPU to heat up.

    For the rest, it is just great to have a change. The OS require a great deal of GPU power as the transparency effect is just great. All this is under the Directx 10 format.

    Infact, i was also registered under the original Windows XP beta tester team when it migrated from the Windows ME.

    I don't think the question is "If" you will use Vista but rather "When" will you migrate to Vista. If you wanna stick with Windows, you can't run away from the upgrade treadmill. Me, not until SP1 is out and even then, got to make sure my custom apps all work properly first. I'm happy with XP Pro for now.

    Have to say that installation of Vista is very idiot proof now It's a breeze. It's like installing anyone program.

    when I used WinXP, after some time of using, it becomes slower and slower. I am wondering if Vista has solved this?

    well it's natural, as you use your pc, you install more software and it takes up more resources and loading time.

    It's the same for any other os. The more cluttered the HDD the slower it is. Try defragging.

    But it's not something to be taken for granted right? I'm quite an idiot at IT, but as an end user, I expect the software installed to be only taking up my system's resources when I use it, and not everytime I switch on my comp.
