I finished my rebuild last night and it went without a hitch! I upgraded from a pentium d 930 to a Q6600 and man is this beast fast now! I also upgraded from xp mce 05' to vista ultimate. I must say shame on the vista bashers out there! This O.S. rocks!!! I think people are trying to run vista on crap machines. I knew I would have to upgrade before I even tried vista but I started getting really scared about this O.S. because of peoples mouths running! This post is for anyone thinking of running vista if your box is more than a year old spend $700 and upgrade or you will be a basher to!
reason people have been bashing VISTA is because the lack of support for some oldish hardware. and other software compatablitiy issues. No doubt after Vista SP1, Vista will be alot better.
I myself will be upgrading to VISTA in a few month.
Have fun with your system XD

Vista SP1 won't significantly change much. I doubt any user will notice much of a difference. A this point it only appears as if it'll raise consumer confidence over the OS.
No doubt after Vista SP1, Vista will be alot better.

I have read numerous reviews on it and the majority of which are more modern machines, so that were I'm getting my opinion from, I find there are few that use older machines when they review this OS. I've seen mixed results with it, from some experiencing nothing to others praising it, but as you said, the majority were also modern computers built for Vista and the future in mind. Though, so far I have heard two things about it that seem to over rule everything else.
Actually, SP1 seems to have addressed quite a few stability issues I've encountered while running Vista on some older hardware. I've been running several machines on the final release (released early to MVP's) and have noticed a significant improvement in both performance and stability where older equipment is involved. It's not as noticeable on my main machine, which was built for Vista and has never had problems running it.
1. It's supposed to fight piracy.
2. It's basically just bundling up all the hotfixes and updates already available. In which case, one could argue that it's really not going to be better then what's already out there (assuming you have downloaded the mounds of stuff out there).
Then others say that it's changing the code for the entire kernal of the OS, which I remain doubtful. Either way, if this makes Vista better I'm all for it, even though I have yet to encounter any OS stability issues that wasn't related to my overclocking.
