I don’t think anyone can answer that question 100%. We will have to take a wait and see position on that. What I do know about Vista is it’s a memory HOG. It’s loaded with so many things that you will probably never use that you will, most likely, have to upgrade your current machine just to keep even if you replace XP with it. Like so many other BIGGER AND BETTER operating systems (Key Word BIGGER) you always seem to pay a price in performance or some other way. I have, many years ago, realized that the developers and the computer manufactures work as a team to force you to stay in the upgrade circle. Do you have any idea how many other processes are running after you boot your machine? A better question would be do you know what they are doing? OK…OK I’m done but every time I start thinking about this subject I get pissed-off.

If you’re looking for better performance in FSX Try the Tweaks (BACK UP ANY FILE YOU ARE GOING TO CHANGE BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!!!!!!!!)

AND I'LL SAY AMEN TO THAT

I have been an amatuer programmer for a long time (and I'm going to stay one). It is a real tragedy, a disgrace to see how the real power of the computer is being kept from the little people.,.. BY DELIBERATE DESIGN.

Ctrl-Alt-Del will bring up your task manager and you can look at what is running. You may want to close something, and that will probably improve FSX. I always check this when I'm doing a comparison analysys on two or more computer systems.

That’s why we need places to go like this. Without the good people that are willing to share what they know we would be S O L and be at the TOTAL mercy of the Big Boys.
