Seriously, whats the point in having vista right now?
It eats resources, hardly any hardware works right with it. Hardly any software works right with it. Its very expencive to boot.
I bet that 3d "trippy" desktop did not use as much resources as vista'* rubbish of a desktop.
I tried using Ubuntu like a year and a half ago and even back then it worked very well and was easy to install and figure out. Best part about it, ITS FREE (at least i was when i was messing with it)!
