      Do you find any stability/speed issues with it? Love the fresh look of Vista and like the widgets on the side, a few are quite useful. This would make sticking with XP on a new system not quite so painful. I've done this same thing with my (original) Xbox, custom backgrounds, MP3 player, photo sideshow etc and it definitely adds a nice touch over the outdated original dashboard.

        That's the only reason I don't use it... I am affraid it will bog me down. I like Yahoo widgets though...

        Does Blinds impact your stability/speed? I know you got two raptors in RAID and top AMD proc... but either way, do you notice too much background stumbling...

          I've been using vista for the last 6 months and TBH I won't go back to XP, XP was just as unstable even with SP2 and all the other patches.

          The only Issue I have with regards to vista is that my graphics card freezes the comp sometimes when I play games full screen, hardly an issue though as I rarely play games on the Pc anyway.

            David, can't you disable the new GUI if you have an old graphics card? Or one without enough video ram...

                Done that, but it's generally when playing games, the nvidia drivers for vista are poor TBH
