Well, now I’ve gone and done it… I formatted my laptop last night in order to revert back to Windows XP. Vista was just running like a pile and really didn’t give me any added joy or features. The laptop hasn’t run better (except possibly with my Ubuntu install) and I couldn’t be happier with this setup. Everything feels a little snappier now. Perhaps Vista is neat and performs well with a top of the line dual core system, but for my entry level laptop, it just wasn’t practical.
