Why Bother?

Why on earth should I bother install on my machine?
I can run the OS comfortably but at what cost?

Why should I go from a high performing system to a mediocre one just to have the Aero GUI and all sorts useless services running?

Is Vista worth it?

The answer to this is yes. Vista on many levels is a fairly big leap, larger than the leap we took from 2K to XP, which wasn't too much. The Vista leap will not likely be "as" big as the 98/ME leap to 2K, but it will be similar. My machine is already fairly cutting edge packing in 4GB of DDR2-800 Ram so there won't be any noticeable slowdown. At work we put 2Gb of ram per laptop or desktop as a standard, so we won't have any trouble with Vista there either. But I do know we are going to disable Aeroglass at work, since some of our systems lack the graphics to handle it, no big deal since Aeroglass is not necessary to take advantage of the new backend features.
