I'm wondering if vista is any good? I'm running windows xp pro at the moment and i want to know if it is worth upgrading.
what are the minimum specs needed to run vista?
Will i get updates daily?
Can someone post a list of pro and cons? please

Vista isn't just a pretty face on XP. Sure it doesn't have any flashy new features like bing able to control it with your mind but there is a lot that has changed behind the scenes.
Given the price, if you are not interested in the looks or reported better engine I’D stick with XP. I found Vista 32 quite a bit slower on HDD transfer speed compared to XP on the same hardware.
Testing on Core 2 Duo 6400 WD 10K 150G; 2 X SEA 7.2k 320G RAID.
43 sec to copy 2.3GB (52 video files) from RAID to WD 10k [Avg 53 MB/s]
52 sec to copy 1.1 GB (5,000 general files) from RAID to WD [Avg 21 MB/s]
47 sec to copy 2.3GB (52 video files) from RAID to WD 10k [Avg 48MB/s]
1min 15 sec to copy 1.1 GB (5,000 general files) from RAID to WD [Avg 14MB/s]There was similar decrease in performace with Vista going from WD to RAID. I also a few other things I did not like with Vista like the defrag with no graphics so I'm sticking with XP for now. Anyone else with the same findings?
