At this point there is no reason to discuss, argue or talk about Vista anymore. The main reason I don't like Vista is performance. Secondary reasons are too many to get into, as I've said Windows 7 addressed the main ssue by bringing back XP performance and responsiveness. Try the Windows 7 beta and see for yourself.
How? now there are no reasons to discuss, for something you started arguing Vista sucks?, I´m still waiting the facts why Vista sucks, I have same performance with Vista and XP in the same conditions (overclock, same settings in game, lastest patches for both OSes..) but you still failed to provide facts why Vista sucks, say it clearly you don´t like Vista that´s why sucks.

32 bit, I just had a friend download it for me coz I have a crappy connection. Also, I keep losing my video drivers and keeps reverting to the standard display adapter. nekro said the 185.20 is the culprit so I guess I need to roll back to 180.84

Haven't really tested it yet, but I keep reading in my local forums that a bunch of games dont run. I prolly dont have the patience to test that out myself.

Regardless, I'm sure I wont make this my main OS just yet.

Again, at this point it doesn't matter. Vista is dead and Windows 7 just flat out blows it away. Windows 7 FTW.

W7 in Beta is better than Vista (SP1 and SP2), sad but true. I have no reason to discuss Vista any longer. W7 is my only OS at this point and I love it.

I have a bunch of games installed. Windows 7 x86 is my only OS at this point, no regrets either.

Gears of War
Mirror's Edge
Rainbow 6 Vegas 2
Pure
COD4 MW
COD5 WAW
Stranglehold
007 Quantum of Solace
Fallout 3
GTA IV
Saints Row 2
Left 4 Dead
GTA Vice City
Assassin's Creed

I can report these all work fine in Windows 7.

I didn't have TOO many problems with Vista SP1 but this is 10-fold over it. This is my only O/S at the moment.

Also, where do we enter the key we got from microsoft? I couldn't enter it when I installed because I had it on my Documents drive (Which I couldn't access at the time) and now I am wondering where to enter it.

OK, nice but SP2 isn´t released for now, only a buggy beta, I´ll try Windows 7 when I can download it legally (think beta 7000 can be download from microsoft)

Go into the control panel then into the system tab, at the bottom of that window click the "change product key" link.

i hope you at least realize why everyone thinks you're full of ****, given that you make many claims and offer no proof whatsoever.

Dude, just deal with it. Vista sucks and W7 is coming to replace it asap. Even you cannot deny that, hell Balmer at MS basically said that a few weeks ago. Install windows 7 there is the proof.

"Without mentioning the security and compatibility issues that have dogged Vista, Ballmer promised that Windows 7 will make PCs faster and easier to use."

Give what a rest? I can't post anything without idiots like Nekro and Vin going on about how I can't give reasons about Vista and blah blah. Im just tired of these idiots doing nothing but trying to bash me for not "loving" Vista. ....on the other hand, Windows 7 rocks, I love it and it works great. Not sure what you want me to give a rest? Applauding Windows 7? So I can't like an OS now?

I'll be in the other Windows 7 threads where people are enjoying it and discussing it sensibly you guys can all pat each other on the butts for loving Vista in this one.
