"Vista is not worth it, just yet."2.5 starson by mandymariee
Pros: Awesome Graphics
Cons: Runs slow! Some programs don't work.
Summary: I just bought a new inspiron 531 from dell, and Vista came installed on it already. Vista runs really slow, but it does have awesome graphics. The way the start menu is set up, it takes a little getting used to, compaired to windows XP.
It takes forever to install a lot of programs, and half of them don't even work.. so I have to un-install them anyway! Otherwise, the programs crash the OS.
I'm to the point where I may just send my dell back.. I thought Vista was going to be great, especially on a new computer, but I'm regretting the purchase.
Overall, I wouldn't suggest an upgrade to Vista, just yet. Windows XP is definatly a better choice, until Vista gets all the kinks out.
