Which is your operational system?
If you can, always avast 5 will be better than 4.

There are many XP users that would give you an argument on if vista was better than XP ;D
After how many years of release, Vista (gold) just never flew (excuse the pun) even after 2 SPs is it what many hoped for on the gold release. After only 1 year Win7 has overtaken Vista's total market share, but that still pales when compared with the 61% share that XP has.

Me I avoided Vista and so far win7 also, as my system isn't ready for an update, by then perhaps I will be looking at win8 ;D

we're getting off topic here but okay, Vista ran perfectly on my computer...I never gave a damn about what the XP herds were saying, as it had nothing to do with what I was seeing. Not mentioning that thousands of Vista bashers never tried Vista, they were just following a trend, stupidly repeating what they heard ::)
 Others were complaining about driver issues, memory issues...I was running Vista on a late 2002 computer, just had to upgrade it from 512 MB to 1GB of RAM and it just flew, graphics, sound, network, everything was working perfectly.
 ...oh on a side note, "Seven" is "Vista"...call it a service pack 3 or second edition, improved and optimized, but it's Vista ;)

Well, if they really would support XP until 2050, it would probably be the first halfway secure windows OS out there, as even MS should be able to fix all bugs in that period of time... ;D
