so why are people still hating on vista? I hated on it until I got a copy of it and installed it... It is a bit slower than XP at a few things, but Windows 2000 was faster than XP and so and on so forth...
My only gripe is that audio stutters occasionally (on several sound cards), but that's why I use XP for audio production.
Being honest about who you are sometimes comes at a price, but it's worth it.
