One thing I have definitely found is the performance of vista scales with CPU and/or memory pressure MUCH more nicely than XP

Hands-down agree there. I was diagnosing random BSODs on my mom's laptop this weekend; turns out it was a bad stick of memory. When I pulled one stick out and rebooted (going from two gigs down to one), Vista didn't even flinch, apart from the unavoidable slight slowdown from cutting your available memory in half.

I'm still waiting for 7 to come out, though. Has anyone heard a definite date that they're going to start the public beta testing?

“Acer, Gateway, and eMachines are the same company now. Great! Now we just need a really big toilet, and we can get rid of all three at once.”
