Looks like Vista SP2 actually made some improvements.  It used to take forever to work with files and folders.  It tended to generate all kinds of goofy previews and statistics whenever you right-click anything.  Sp2 seems to be running much smoother.

I still prefer XP.

Installed SP2 last week sometime, it hasn't gave me hell yet, but I'll complain here if it does!  8)

Install Windows 7 RC... it is after all Vista (release 2) and runs better than Vista SP1 and SP2. No more networking issues when moving between networks in sleep / hibernate mode is my favourite feature. ;)

I am even running it on a low performance netbook and it works better than the ubuntu 9.04 netbook remix.

No it has a very slooow 160GB drive... definitely not SSD but in theory an SSD should be quicker that's assuming MSFT have put the correct drivers in the OS
