XP vs. Vista

It was time to get a new computer with the power I needed to make some money online. Since I am a Dell girl I went to them and got the one I am using now. Dell with Vista. It is a bit paranoid about security however it has performed so well for me I have no regrets. I buy new computers and do not waste my time with recycled ones. Good luck when you decide to get your next computer.

It is running really well. I am so spoiled that now since my house burned and we are selling the land. My next spot must allow me to compute at this speed. lol Dell has been a great company for me to deal with. They even helped me get this duplicate computer since I had just upgraded before my housefire. So check them out and good luck no matter what you do.

I'll stick around with XP for a while since i dont find anything special in vista other than the beautiful interface with aero theme... And also my system has only 512 MB ram..although this is enough for vista the performance will not be that good in it,...so i am currently sticking around with XP

Windows Vista can not be run on most of the old computers as they need more compatiblity than old computers.Windows Xp with service pack 2 is easy to install as well as it can run on the older as well as newer pc.So,I would recommend Windows Xp more than Vista as most of the function of Windows Vista is also available in Windows XP.

I could say that it gives me an idea between the two but not that superior. Vista is not yet perfect when it comes to security (but of course one OS should contain its own anti-virus or else!). Some Malwares and adwares can be missed by Windows defender of Vista but some can be detected and it gives the user a warning/s. But some threats can still slipped through its Windows defender. Hmm.. I guess we cannot still call Vista as the one we're waiting for to stand out to those headaching threats.

i don't like vista much unlike xp i needs more memory nearly about 20 gb free space and 1 gb of ram to run it smoothly so its costly and xp is used for years and we can just let it go and vista is so we can't say about it's security and user friendly and now i am used to xp so i don't like to change it runs very nicely in my machine !!!!!........
