At first I wasn't a fan, but really have no problem with it now.
I had more of a problem getting familiar with Office '07.

Once I changed the appearance back to the XP look, my computer runs like it's turbo charged!

It WAS 5.9 for the top end. I was under the impression that they were supposed to raise it now that quad core processors and 2nd gen directx 10 and first gen 10.1 cards were now available.

If I jack my overclock up to 3.6Ghz the processor goes to 5.9, and If I run Raid 1+0 on harddrives they go to 5.9... but I'm stuck with my videocard - an ATI X1950XTX - because it seems Nvidia has left out video inputs on their cards.

Ryan - yep, thanks for explaining. The Kernel is like your unconscious brain... stuff like breathing, heartbeat... stuff you don't have to even think about to do. The kernel is code that tells your operating system how to do what it does, and most people don't even know it is there. If someone writes code that can replace code in the kernel, it can be inserted before ANY services of the operating system are started... i.e. anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware... once you have something that deep in your computer, you more often than not are just going to have to wipe the drive - and I mean completely format it - and start over from scratch.

Before service pack 1 the vista kernel was write-protected... nothing could insert itself into the pre-kernel section of the operating system. Mcafee and other anti virus companies complained about not being able to access it, and Microsoft - instead of stonewalling them, actually capitulated and let them in. This in effect is like inventing the nuclear bomb... once the "genie was out of the bottle"... there was nothing anyone could do to stop the knowledge from spreading.

If you're really bored, HERE is a wiki page on rootkits. They suck. They suck even more than k-state and mizzou having children and having their children date your firstborn daughter. And that is the suck-suckingist-suck-suck-that-ever-did-suck!

I am sticking with my XP Professional

Not only does Vista not have the same driver database as XP but its an operating system that thinks the user will hack into the computer instead of someone else hacking into it

I think Vista will be the next Windows ME and fade into oblivion in about a year
