I'm about to "upgrade" from Windows Vista Business back to XP Pro. I had put it on when I was orignally going to do a clean install of XP, but I thought I'd give Vista a go. I had been ok with it, but various problems with software (Often Microsoft's own software as I am a .net developer) just ticked me off. It was only this morning that when I installed Call of Duty 4 and found it unplayable at a decent resolution that I decided to remove it. I have a fairly good spec PC with excellent graphics, and I can't use it because my OS is sitting there in the background chewing up resources. It even says on the back of the case for Call of Duty 4 under System requirements: "Memory: XP: 512Mb Vista: 768Mb" Bye Vista.

I too am fed up with vista and have been for sometime. I run on average 3-5 systems at a time in my house, and only one of them has vista. it has been running vista for 6 months now and I've had to reinstall the os 3 times so far. i have never had to do that with an xp system, or a 98 system, and i put them through a whole lot more. I tried downgrading to xp once before, but the only problem was my machine, an hp s3100n, was built for vista, and half of the hardware drivers don't exist for xp. Or at least they didn't 4 months ago. I'm thoroughly frustrated by the whole experience, and yet, I'm still stuck running vista.

help!! how did you get an old parallel to work with XP with XP Professional? My XP Prof. on new DELL 'sees' the ancient Lexmark 2380 Plus, and asks if I want a test page, but the page hangs in 'Error' status. It's connect- ed with a Radio Schack parallel to USB adapter. Can any help?? tx, chris
Same problems here. I am trying my best to get my HP printer worked in Vista. Many times I thought, 'whoo at alast i'm there', but then another problem comes. I thinks better i get back to XP
