Recently, I lost my hardrive. Went and bought a new machine, which had Windows Vista already installed. Yeah, it could (and quite likely is) me...but it has given me nothing but grief. For one, the "Windows Mail" is continually being corrupted...whereas the old Outlook Express never gave such problems. But that is just one thing...

I guess my sophomoric question is, how many of y'all have switched back to Windows XP from Vista? Is it even advisable no matter how much one dislikes it? And if so, is it something one should attempt to do themselves (if not really all that astute about it all)?

Hell, ANY advise would be appreciated!

I remember having the Windows Mail problem with my first Vista machine, and I followed the instructions here.

Vista is fine, although I wouldnt upgrade an XP system to Vista. Always a clean install. My main machine is running XP and I have no plans to go to Vista there... going to wait for Windows 7.

Vista needed a lot of work to get it usable and stable, and two service packs later that work is still only half-done. Now Microsoft is making a new OS that focuses on quality improvements (speed, stability, compatibility). Given that, why would it bother to fix Vista now when it has a new OS to sell in less than a year?

I'm back running XP (with Linux of course) for now, and will probably get Windows 7 on my next laptop a year from now.

everyone forgets XP took 2 service packs before security was minimum standard
read the articles from 2001-2002-2003-and 2004
SP2 broke alot of aplications so in all honesty if vista was out another 2 years YES people would flock, like they did XP
