I have been using vista for a bit now. I have not been too impressed. A few great features are locked in vista. Many things that are added are items I never use (Sidebar, graphics, etc…) the look and feel stuff. One thing that came with vista was a performance hit. I have a Dell 820 with 2 gig ram and it is a nice little box. With XP on this thing it is a rocket, when you put vista on it, it’s just OK.
Today Microsoft released a few updates that are to address a few of the issues that are out with vista. Even though they will not increase the performance of my box they may remove some of the little issues I am having.
