Not to be a basher cuz I just don't care but were they running PT or stuff with more modern code like Cubase ,Sonar etc. That could well make a difference.

Vista reminds me of a modern car. When something breaks you look at it scrach your head and call the AAA to have it towed. XP on the other hand I can roll up my sleeves and dive under the hood without a manual.

u know what....

i was always a Vista hater.
XP has always been my fav OS (besides Mac OSX),

but to tell you the truth...
i've been on Vista for a while now and it runs everything I've been running pretty well!

I haven't had any problems yet...
so... I can't really talk bad about it.

All I do is use the Windows XP scheme on it and boom.

Going from PC to MAC in 2006 I was told how much better osx was compared to Windows XP. Going back to Windows XP again earlier this year (with new hardware Core I7) my experience has thaught me that there is not a big difference.

XP/OSX works just as fine as the other. Just keep the plugins up-to-date, the background processes to a minimum and the hardware compatible.

I have nothing against Vista. Anti-Vista complaints i'v heared are from guys when trying to run it on dated hardware, or laptops.

As a freelance I get the chance to work on all 3 systems (still mostly OSX and XP). From my experience Vista is the most stabe, followed colsely by XP. OSX, while being a very smooth UI system, is allways iffy when it comes to crashing/freezing with PT. But For the most part I have to say they all work if the system is well maintained and properly updated (plugin versions, system updates and so on)

I do think XP 32 has a smaller mem footprint than Vista 32, this could mean you'd have more RAM available for samples.

W7 is more interesting to me at this point.

Can PT run on Vista with stability? Absolutely and that's never been the issue. When it comes to running a real time app like PT, XP is the clear winner in performance and that's what it's always been about. Vista gives PT massive performance hits compared to XP. You can not get the plug-in instances and OS latency on Vista compared to XP. It's the way the OS operates under the hood and Digi has always been well aware of it. Vista may have been a vast improvement for block based processed general music apps, but was clearly not a vast improvement for a real time application like Pro Tools. BIG difference there. The Vista era is done and over with and bypassed by many PT users. Digidesign barely even supported it and with good reason. Vista is gone, time to put attention on W7 64.

I like the car analogy. Everything can be compared to cars in the end. In fact Im sure I've seen quite a few references to cars on the duc. XP just needs a push every now and again whereas Vista needs roadside assistance.

Complete and utter bullox. You can like Vista all you want and that's fine, but the writer(s) of that article are, quite simply, wrong. See Shane's facts above.

I use Vista on a daily basis for a multitude of applications both audio and non-audio on PCs, laptops, and tablets, and I can't WAIT until Windows 7 overwrites yet another muddy footprint in the march of Microsoft (remember Windows ME? Ugh.) I have installed Vista and XP on literally hundreds of machines (yes, hundreds,) and XP is the clear-cut winner in my experiences as far as stability, reliability, and responsiveness. In the end, whatever works for people works for people, but there's no denying the fact that you will NEVER get as much 32-bit audio processing power out of Vista as you will with XP.

Windows 7 is feeling fly, been testing it out on lots of different machines and I'm impressed. Hopefully this is Digi's cue to jump on the 64-bit bandwagon. Honestly, considering the OS choices, I don't blame them for avoiding it for this long. We'll see if Windows 7 can touch "miniscule" XP (Here's hoping for a not-too-distant "miniscule" 7 release!")
