I have a dual boot system and have tried fsx on both. I haven't done any scientific calculations or anything like that but I believe that FSX runs better on XP...but not by a huge amount. Let it also be said that I haven't spent the time tweaking on Vista either. I think Vista's performance has to do with the fact that graphic drivers for Vista aren't where there they should be , yet. (I am using the 32 beta drivers for Nvidia 8800) Although there are plenty of people getting decent results with Vista. I am interested in performance and the future of DX10 etc which is why I went dual boot. So you can see that there is no clear choice of OS. The only real reason (as a gamer) to choose Vista is to utilize DX10 which isn't implemented in most games yet and not in FSX until Dec.
