    it isnt
    it uses ram much more effectively than xp
    it appears to be hogging alot but its really not
    vista runs great on the new macbook btw

    Ok Im just going with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition Because I Found out my Windows XP Media Center Edition disc Doesnt have SP2, so I am going to go with Windows Vista Home Premium + its way cooler anyway LOL with Windows Aero and 3D Flip

    Oh yeah and one more thing....is Windows Vista more immune to Viruses than Windows XP and does Windows Vista Home Premium Edition come with Windows Defender?
