    I've been running a non-legit vista ultimate release for sometime now and have been getting really fed up with them, not only cause they won't hold activation but it seems to get sluggish really fast after a reformat. Due to these factors, i'm contemplating wether to reformat with vista for the 100th time or partition my drive, throw all my files on there and reformat with XP (which I have a real key for). What do you think?

    There's vista releases that have the activation crap removed.
    I've had one that i downloaded in march running on one computer since then with no activation issues ever popping up.
    Not sure if it's gotten any updates from windows update though. Maybe those might fck something. Not a big issue though, just don't update.

    Mine has been running a few weeks with a version i just downloaded, that has sp1 integrated, also no issues with activation...

    I don't even put in a key.

    Probably one of the monthly "BIE" releases, I was thinking of just using one of those but I don't know.

    been running vista since it came out haven't had any real big issues with it. but if you are a big gamer i recommend you stick with XP Pro.

    It's all about preference.

    I don't like Vista so I would go back to XP

    As I type I'm installing XP on my new vista laptop. I like performance in my computers, but I'm kinda funny tat way.
