    Download Vista SP1, I felt my system running more stable after it, since Good Friday.

    I helped my gf downgraded back to XP as she complained the navigation is horrible, there is way too much security checks and can't play most of her Chinese games.

    vista lag is norm, due to higher equip requirements.
    need at least 2 gb to get it running smoothly, imo.
    vista also starts up a lot of unwanted services in the background,
    so if u can tinker with them, it helps a lot.
    either that or dl vista sp1

    I am a Vista user and I must admit it is a resource hog. First things first update to Vista Service Pack 1 to ease the agony of having to wait "100 hours remaining to copy files" In my opinion you can safely disable file indexing unless you are the type who does alot of searches. Lastly to answer your question, Yes, it is pretty much the norm to experience "millisecond" delays when opening files in Vista.

    there is also the idea that sooner or later everybody is going to use vista.. like it or not

    when everyone is using vista and some compatibility issues start to surface, slowly the switch should be made..

    just like how people complain about win 95 versus win xp,.. in the end also all switch

    of course some of the pressing issues were resolved too.

    vista works fine for me. no real complains other than that start menu, i prefer the old press and branch out type, rather than the programs expanding in one column.

    I actually had the mentality that eventually everybody will need to move to Vista, give it a few months I'll get used to it. So I upgraded my work machines. It's now a few months later. I am in the process of downgrading all back to XP.

    to me, Vista is a downgrade instead of upgrade...
