Recently I read some discussions about how great Vista is, however, my experience is not so good. Please, look at the benchmarks below. I tried to get to uefa.com
using Mozilla Firefox (I measured
the time with my Samsung cell phone, nothing was cached)
1) Gateway MX 3215 (laptop) 1 GB RAM, Celeron M, Windows XP Home Edition
2) Compaq Presario 1700 (laptop) 128 MB RAM, Celeron 800 Mhz, Windows Millenium 6,55 seconds.
3) Gateway GT5465E Dual Core Intel 2140 2GB Ram, Windows Vista Home Premium
So, as you can see from actual numbers, Vista, which is supposed to be the bright future is by far the slowest. Please, feel free to suggest ways to improve my Vista experience. The Vista computer is almost the way it was from the store. (Please, take into account that I am an amateur computer user and I use my computer primarily for newspaper reading, email checking - no 3D gaming).
