it's pretty damn quick, and i'm running it on an old notebook. and zomg the standby/resuming of windows WORKS!
I seem to remember everyone saying XP was faster when it was launched.
But after a few years of using it, a number or OS updates and patches, some real applications and a few hundred Mb of logs & registry entries and it slowed down some what.
The same is true of OS X and probablly all OS's.
I was wondering if the comparisions flying around are taking this into account. I guess against a clean install of Vista (version 1) without any patches or usage
would probablly show it's faster as Vista was not ready at launch. But how about Windows 7 beta (unpatched) v XP (the original release unpatched).
Has anyone tried this yet?
