Vista Is newer and will have more support from new software and drivers for new hardware. Some functions and menus are different if you are used to XP. Needs more memory and disk space.
XP Is smaller and leaner. You can fit XP on a 2G (dos) partition. Works well for older machines.

What is the advantages of linux from mswindows


The main advantage is that the software does not suffer from virus attacks like windows does.
Many people think it is easier to operate than windows. Plus it can run like the older versions of windows, such as XP.
You can also run have both using something called dual boot.
It is being considered as an operating system more since MS brought out windows 10, especially with the forced updates which crash the system.


The disadvantages is that some Windows software will not run on it, especially some gaming ones.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of windows 8.1 and andriod?


Horrible Operating systems. Unfortunately, if you buy a new computer you are saddled with them. Stay with XP or Win 7. If not, good luck - you will need it! Very steep learning curve.
