Which is better is very subjective, so it comes down to the individual person to decide for themselves.

i've recently made the switch to Vista from XP Home (5 days now) and have actually found performance increase in games:
GH3 - fret board doesn't skip anymore
COD4 - 10fps gain
Crysis - 8fps gain
TM United - 6fps gain

drivers installed perfectly and no BSOD
i do not have a crazy system
i have 800MB of RAM used right now - Media Player, 3 FF open, AVG spyware/virus are the main apps running right now.
it boots up almost as fast as XP

havn't had to much time to get into all the other features yet though. hopefully this week. :S

i'm glad i made the switch.
