Another good idea would be to clean the Disk defragment the system fix errors on the drive disable the indexing service disabling the theme service go back the Win98 theme and finally clean the registry.
Easier since you wont have to export all your mail favourites documents reinstall all theese vital programs you cant live without as Photoshop CS3 GIMP Firefox Maxthon .Net Framework 3.5 Visual Studio Express Suite Office 2007 ZoneAlarm MuBlinder Avira AntivirPersonal AVG EasyCleaner NetObjects Fusion FrontPage 2003 Windows Live suite poweriso etc. And that is just like 5% of all the vital programs i cant live without.

Lonewolf, vista doesn't need 3gb! Microsoft said 512mb minimum but 1gb recomended, but they must be wrong, since dojan has 256 ram

They have put 512 as a minimum.
You cant install Vista on 256MB unless you patch the WinSetup.dll file to bypass the memory check.
So if that is not done you will not be able to run it.
But i have a friend who installed XP on 64MB ram...
It is really sluggish.

Who would possibly play two games having three virtual machines having multiple gimps and photoshops at the same time?
It makes no sence.
Back on topic guys, this belongs to the Vista thread, not in XP.

NT stands for New Technology (NTFS = New Technology File System)
A NT system (Windows XP, Vista, me, etc.) cannot get Blue Screen Of Death.
XP stands for eXPerience (LAME!). Windows XP's code name was Whistler.
Between XP and Vista there was a never released OS called Longhorn (Not the Vista Beta) and originally Vista's codename was Blackcomb (Which they later took to windows 7 and called that blackcomb before renaming it to Windows 7 or Vienna).
Longhorn was never released, and with the WinFS removed people wherent expecting much from it.
Bill Gates's words?
I dont think that the world is ready for it.
Pffffft!!!

i prefer XP over Vista

mostly cause of the games, and that the Vista MS PAINT lies when you choose a colour

Come on Dojan Runecats + K-Designs for world domination, me will make XP look like pee!

vista mspaint is very un-different to xp with a few extra features so it's still better.
but yet again i don't like Microsoft.

Not all differences are to the better.
But i think that Vista MS paint look somewhat similar to the one in 3.1
