    Default Intel not making the move to Windows Vista

    Intel has reportedly decided to skip Windows Vista, and let XP remain on the company's 80,000 workstations. This is the first time Intel has bypassed a major Windows OS.

    I wonder why, Vista has been out what 1 - 2 years not and its still not as stable as it was reported to be.

    personally i don't like vista not because of performance issues or stability. it's fine and dandy in that respect.. it just feels too big for my liking.. something about it that i don't feel comfortable using it. when the claims went out about XP having things interconnected inside the OS ( IE, wmp etc ) i didn't think about it much, but after using vista and checking it out inside out, it looks like that interconnection is bigger than ever. so you have to have EVERYTHING that's there to have a nice working OS. so i don't really get why vista has to be so big. supposedly it's about security but since i'm not a person that needs external security ( i lived without av, fw for 3 years now ) i don't need vista too...

    True the hype surrounding Vista wasnt warranted. But its still a good opertaing system imo. XP wasnt the finished article and its still improving now. Im quite happy to use either im not a fanboy of either (or try not to be)

    I have home many different versions of vista, bloated ones, stipped ones, modded ones, homebrew ones and vista bare is just as stable as one that is bloated. there is no differences except for the one stripped it runs quicker and smoother but the same problems are still there. thats what I have come to notice.
