    LOL...yeah...Tis one of the first things I'll turn off. Similar to what I do with every WinXP rig I have...first thing I do...."Performance mode"..basically the windows classic theme.

    I like the "snappiness" that returns to the system when flipped in that mode.

    I'll be running Vista on a side system for a while, one at office, one at home. Just cuz..gotta learn it.

    Action Pack!

    I just laughed at my boss when he said we needed to upgrade. Our 2.53 Pentium 4s with 512 MB of RAM and integrated graphics can't handle Vista worth a piss, mainly because EVERYONE WANTS IT BECAUSE OF THE AERO INTERFACE.

    Stick with XP unless you're a gamer or already have an uber rig.
