It runs much faster with XP, and there aren't any issues with program compatibility with it.
It has a Turion 64 X2 1.6GHZ, with 1GB RAM and a Geforce 6150.
Well that's probably why he had some problems with Vista, the 1GB of RAM. That might be fine for Vista Basic, and you're not a big multi-tasker. But any other version and you're probably going to want 2GB. I just bought my brand new laptop yesterday and it came with 2GB and Vista Premium.
I've also heard that Vista will be coming out with the first service pack some time soon, solving some issue that people might be having, is this true? Either way, Vista will be fine once service packs are out.
