I dual-boot Vista & XP until SP1 came out. A month or two after that took XP off my machine. Now I am running Vista Ultimate 64bit and haven't found a program that could not run it. All my crashes (seldom) are related to one program which also crashes XP and OSX. I find XP painful to use at work. Reminds me of Windows 98.

I use this computer for gaming and coding so its a pretty hefty PC. Just bought the nVidia GTX260. Poke tongue | ;-P
