Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I WANT TO CHANGE VISTA, TO A XP THEME. WINDOWS VISTA IS HONESTLY SLOW AND SHIT. LOTS OF PROBLEMS I FIND COMPARED TO WINDOWS XP
I suggest if you want to speed your machine t put more ram, (2gb) is good. if you revert to xp if your budget is low.

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.

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..
