I've been watching the whole Vista debate and this guy at zdnet did some
testing with Vista's SP1 vs. XP SP2. The results are that XP is just plain
faster in most cases. You can check it out here:

be replaced with its predecessor. From what I've seen personally, I also
think it's slower in general.
