I have not even thought about using Vista or upgrading since I am quite happy with my XP.

IMHO the only compelling reason to move to Vista is if you ahve a new DX10 video card and want to play DX10 games. That is my only reason for running Vista. If all my games ran on Ubuntu Id run it over Vista.

Id rather just have DX10 for XP.

If you care about gaming, the release of both Crysis and Vista SP1 should tell some tales. You'd have to have the DX10 hardware to make use of that feature but the tests by then should be a good indication of how Vista's overall gaming performance is evolving. Right now I think it's kinda like that Cavemen TV show, it's new but really just the same old advertising hype.

Some people dont like it, I know I do. Iam not a hardcore gamer mind you, but the games I do have run just fine on vista. After having it, I couldnt go back to XP. I think its love.

I think you should wait for some time until there is any upgradation in Vista like SP1 but for now I would rather suggest you to go with your current XP OS.

I think I will buy vista when I get a DX10 card. But since most of DX10 games are DX9 to, I will stay XP and will update when an update comes out that makes Vista use less RAM.I already like how Vista looks, DX10 and everything, but I am just waiting until something fixes that RAM problem. Also,are there any games that vista is known to have problems with? Like, it just plainly doesn't work?

You could buy Windows Media Centre, then download the Vista upgrade for it from Microsoft (free)... Coming from someone who uses both OS's daily, I'd stick with XP for the moment. The only real "selling" point of Vista is it's DX10 support. Almost every game out can't take advantage of this anyway, so for all intensive purposes, it's the same as XP. The other thing about Vista is it's heavy compatibility problems. For instance, if you buy Vista, and get Office 2007 with it, none of your old documents will work! Office 2007 is NOT backwards compatible (for the most part, some things work, but not much). Final answer: Get XP. If you really want Vista, wait for a service pack, then get it.

DO NOT GET VISTA! I have it and it's complete and utter garbage.
