Mmm, I got a Dell Studio 15 a couple of weeks ago, and its drivers demanded Vista, so after trying to move to XP unsuccessfully I stayed with Vista, the SP1 version. I have had no problems with stability.

I've had it configured to have the XP look and feel as much as possible, since the Microsost geniuses came up with a superior human interface which I see as not at all superior.

A couple of the troublesome "superior" interface elements remain--such as the Blackberry-like flickscroll, but I've been able to at least choose settingsits effect, and others like it.

BOTTOM LINE: I'm OK with Vista SP1.

    Oops! Typo: Next to last line should read " least choose settings to diminish its effect,..."

    Sorry, I can spell and know my English, I just can't type.

What are your specifications? There are a number of memory saving options you can try (and frankly I am surprised none have been mentioned yet).

You need to clean up programs, the GUI, startup, services etc etc and it should run much faster. Vista is only slow if you dont know how to use it. Granted there are some outstanding issues such as the networking shell but for the purposes of speeding up your PC, these are the basic admin tasks you should have already carried out:

1. Disable Windows Aero, disable transparency and sidebar and revert to the XP theme (Called windows classic in Vista)

2. Use msconfig to check start up items and disable those which arent needed.

3. Disable any service you dont need.

4. Use readyboost to enhance performance.

5. Turn unused windows features off.

6. If you are a competent administrator, disable UAC

:0) Hope this helps

Change to some version of Linux man. Why wait for a SP and then another SP to fix the previous ServicePacks..In my experience Vista takes 1-2 minutes just to delete a txt file. I have more than a Gig RAM free and the CPU is fast enough to run 4-5 VM's at a time...Honestly dude, just CHANGE..change is good..

How to make Vista faster?

You can try changing your Windows Theme to a more plain less animations ect..

To do this click on the desktop right-click now click on Personalise and now there are many things you can adjust to improve your computers performance like screen saver settings, wallpaper settings, theme settings and many more.

If your using the theme Vista Aero (with glass effect) then i would recommend you to change the theme to the Vista Basic theme.

The glass effect uses lots of your computers RAM and will slow it down dramatically.

Here is a guide so you can change your theme with example pictures so it's much easyier to understand what to do -

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
