if you were to comparing it to any other system you have used would windows vista be better or would another be better?

-= Vista is great.. But somehow, slower than XP & has very high requirements [esp. in gaming], moreover, I have program compatibility issues.. But, on the contrary, it was a lot safer & secure than XP..

I agree, Most of the bad stuff you read about Vista is pure and simple FUD by people who like to knock Microsoft. Vista did have it's problems in the beginning, but those were mostly fixed with SP-1.

Yes Vista requires more memory than XP, but XP required more memory than 98. This is the norm for a new OS ( With the exception of Win 7).

Why not upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 and take advantage of all the fixes that have been instituted?
The RC release is very stable, much faster than Vista. You also get to use it for almost a year before you 
need to purchase the final version.  :)

     I have trouble just get use to one and staying with it. I don't have the schooling to make changes on the computer offten. when my husband and I used different computer I had to try to keep both in working. now I have just one thanks God. any changes we both have to agree to it before I try it. he always ask me about the computer and what to do and as I said I am not good at computer. my husband and I don't fight over the computer. we have not yet any way in a long time. I don't like stress and all that. so I just try to keep things simple so my husband and I can enjoy the computer. years ago computers were more user friendly I do not think that any more. I have to try to keep things as basic and simple as I can. some changes can be fun and easy I just wished it was all like that. mike like no change he says if works leave it alone. I like a few basic changes. just not a lot an one time.
thanks Sharon sham1313 :)

Changing over from Windows XP to Vista is not a small change.
If you're already having issues with XP, I suggest that you not make the change.
Changing will be like starting to learn using a computer all over again.
The user interface is all together different in Windows Vista.
There are also some stringent hardware requirements and possible issues to consider.
