    I'd go with XP, although I haven't installed on my computer a close friend of mine has and he was unable to connect to the internet, his internet security was not compatible with vista (so he had to get a new ISP), some programs and games did not work and the computer was almost unsusable for a few days. After he got someone into fix all his problems there are still some compatibility problems and his computer is running a bit slower than it used to. (he was using Vista home btw)

    So my opinion is XP.

    DUDE XP ALL THA WAY

    Vista only looks nice.
    Using vista is like dealing with a really fat chick with a pretty face.

    There's actually a vista/xp version where the OS is XP but it has all the looks and animations of Vista.

    reason why I hate/hated vista..


    KILLS your ram.

    I have a 1024mb of ram and the computer stayed at 50%+ ram usage all of the time even when doing nothing at all. Thats bullshit.

    Stay with XP, vista is garbage.

    Chinese, how much ram do you have?
