It dosn't even make games easier. Some games, well, don't even work, and many of the ones that do run like crap. On Vista, Battlefield 2 barely runs on medium graphics settings on my system. On XP it runs almost flawlessly with high settings. It even occaisionally boots you for "having inadequate O/S privileges", even when I'm the administrator of my system. I'm no fan of Apple, but that commercial with pc and the security guy had a point.

I went back to XP, and am not regretting it one bit.
