I'd vote, but I've only experienced XP. I've seen some people use Vista, but I don't want to be biased.

Um... "XP-with Service Packs" makes no sense at all. Also, you're missing some operating systems. This is how it goes:

XP Home

XP Media Center

XP Pro

Vista Basic

Vista Premium

Vista Buisness

Vista Ultimate

Server '08 (though that isn't needed)

There are also the 4 Server '03 versions, but nobody would vote for that.

Pro is Professional and which kinds of XPs come ewith Service Packs?

EDIT:It says XP or Vista not XP,Vista,or Server :P

They all do. Or rather, they all should do.

Like I said on Yata's forum, Service Packs are not types of XP operating system like Professional or Home are, they are just updates bundled in a package. Nothing more. There is no need to classify them as a type of OS.

By the way, I'm Vista all the way. I'm on Home Premium at the moment, but I'm not fussed which version of Vista to sway towards, so long as it's not Basic.

what type of XP's come with Service Packs?

Service packs don't really change the UI or featuers of an OS at all. They just give bug fixes and speed improvements. All versions of XP have 3 service packs (one of them still in beta), and Vista has one. They don't have a special name for it however. They just call them SP1, SP2, and SP3. But once again, Service Packs are not operating systems! They are packs that service the operating system!

Fixed. :-)

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?

I used windows xp pro when I use windows, but it's skinned to look like vista, seeing as I like vista's overall look, but not the overall feel. I still prefer ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy or OS X though, even though the .net framework is becoming increasingly easier to program with.

If you've never used it, how can you make that judgment?

"what you hear" can sometimes be enough to judge something on

well maybe not

anyway, I've beta tested Vista, and I was not happy. I even gave SP1 a chance (thinking that performance and annoyance* problems may have been solved) but that wasn't that much of an improvement (though it was an improvement).

I'll be using XP Pro 64bit for a while, maybe MS' next OS will be better (and yes 64bit XP has proper driver support these days, except from Logitech)

*: aside from UAC, since that can be disabled

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(

I don't get the way this poll is going. Vista is undoubtably superior to XP Pro, both visually and core-wise. For example, there are many many changes to the way Windows makes use of the process priorities in Vista that didn't exist in XP. Also, if you have at least 4GB of ram, Vista will actually perform better than XP because your applications will be preloaded in the cache, and RAM doesn't cost much nowadays (just did a quick Google and found a Kingston 1GB DDR2 stick for $20).

Well I going to go with the ture OS from Windows here. XP because if I got Vista I be so mad knowing I just got ripped off by Windows. Now I not saying that because I feel Vista is a system hog and is to buggy. Lets remeber XP was buggy at 1st to, but XP was not put out to make enough money to replace itself. I said it before and I will say it again Vista is going to be another Windows ME. I think I will upgrade from XP when Windows 7 comes out and is ready to be everything Vista was not. They been working on Windows 7 before Vista even came out.

absolutely not. people who don't like something are nearly always more vocal than the ones who do. if something perfectly meets your expectations, why bother posting on the internet about it? nobody will care. unless it's absolutely so amazing that you strongly believe that everyone should care. *coughFIREFLYcough*

Info I just found out:

Support for XP SP1 has just ended

Vista is already over a year old, as of November 30 '07. I forgot the cake!

There are some fake/leaked screenshots of Vienna coming out already *cough*

It reminds me of mac os a bit much even though there isn't much to see

Pyro: if lots and lots and loads of people (especially gamers and programmers) and even companies say that they don't like Vista, there must be something wrong with it..

usedHONDA: just because RAM is cheap doesn't mean that I want Vista to eat it up. I can sure tell you that Vista is downright slow anything less than 2GB and that XP is faster at any amount, except the loading time of often-used programs, but I'd rather have a decent framerate than an improved loading time (do those 5 seconds mean that much to you?) and DX10 which was supposedly better only deteriorates framerates even more with no visual extra's in Crysis (although you have to edit some files to set the settings to Very High for fair comparison) (not tried other games)

Vista.. maybe for silly companies who think they need "support" and naive home users who don't need performance anyway but like the "fancy" (read: slow) interface (with useless transparency and hardware shader just to blur it == waste) and the "protection" (read: annoyance) against yourself (fortunately you can turn that off).

The day before yesterday, me + friends were doing multiplayer GTA2 on our laptops during Databases and the only guy with Vista was the only guy who has to reboot twice just to make his wireless network work (coincidence?) :lol:

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(

XP home. SP3 will finish it and performance wise/compatibility wise, it is the best you can expect from Microsoft.

Vista is only fit for being taken out back of the woodshed, served with a Desert Eagle, (preferably jhp), and buried in lime. Another classic Gates failure ... WindowsME anyone? ::chuckle::

P.S. Is this is a Microsoft house?

It's got to be a "Micro$oft house", you can't use PdN on anything else. Realistically and easily before someone starts banging on about the Mono port...
