i use both but chose vista because it has more features i use, i.e., windows mail, calendar, movie maker, etc. i really don't see much difference in the two.

at0mic, Windows 7 has those too. They were just moved to the Windows Live features.

TBH, Windows 7 is better due to lower resource usage and other features added (Sticky Notes, Snap, etc).

jon, yes. but windows live is a horrible mess of extra junk and the movie maker is so striped down it useless.
