If anyone is thinking of upgrading to vista don't. Windows 7 is going to be out later this year. I'm using the beta of windows 7 at home and I use vista at work. I see Vista as worse than XP but I like 7 a lot more than both! It's really that awesome, so it's worth waiting

Processor 5.8
Memory 5.8
Graphics 7.9
Gaming Graphics 6.0
Hard Disc 5.6

Total Score 5.6

Upgrading your OS is stupid anyway. If your machine was designed to run XP, it will probably run best in XP.

This is so cliche for people on beta software, you just installed the beta operating system for a new operating system and now you're going around advertising it so you can tell everyone that you have it, without seeming so forward.

Don't know if this was addressed because of the explosion of posts I'm not going to bother reading. You cannot legally buy OSX and run it on a PC. There is such a thing as osx86 which is a modified version that allows you to run it on other computers. Hardware compatibility is a HUUUGE pain though and it doesn't run quite properly. (though usably)

I assume you meant apple, but yea, they make money off of their hardware as much as their software.

The last I heard it had to be built using hardware that the Mac OS was built for (Intel chips, certain graphics cards etc) but it says in the EULA you can only install the OS on Apple branded hardware. Technically you can, but legally you can't. Though just like how MS dosn't target the end user when someone pirates their OS neither do Apple - just the sellers.

Processor: 5.9
Memory: 5.5
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming: 5.9
Hard Disk: 5.7
BASE SCORE: 5.5

Memory lets me down a bit. I might have to loosen the timings a bit. For the record, I love Vista, I used XP for ages, and when I built my current computer I upgraded(!) to XP x64 and it was horrible, unsupported crap. About 7 months ago I installed the 64-bit Vista which I think is great, haven't had a single problem with compatibility and it runs smooth and nice, boots up quick and is all round shiny. Yeah, it uses a lot of memory, but it actually USES it rather than hogging it like a lot of people seem to think.

My specs are:
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz
Memory: 4GB RAM
Hard Drives: 640GB internal & 500GB external
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX (768MB)
