I have been using Vista since release. Looked very pretty but found that it was slightly slower than XP on my machine. I also had issues with my scanner as although drivers existed, the main functionality of Hewlett Packards software was not compatible with Vista.

Personally, I was not overly impressed with the operating system overall and took the chance the other day to re-install XP which I am more than happy with due to its compatibility and support.

Maybe in 6 months to a year I will go back to Vista, when support from other companies is prevalent, but for the time being XP is the OS of choice.

I am tempted to do the same but want to bear with and over come these problems.

The same here, I had Vista but went back to XP as I realised I could easily live without the fancy stuff and would rather have the reliability and speed of XP.
