I have Vista on a new pc cant see any major difference with FPS between XP and Vista. The O/S alone will prob not have any bearing on FPS as it is more down to what ahrdware you have to run it.

(Even after, what is it a year now?..) I can still see no reason to run FS9 or FSX on Vista. Even the DX10 bits aren't worth using Vista. XP still has way more headroom. I got curious again recently and thought I was being harsh on Vista, so I gave it a third chance - it still disappointed me and off it came.

Basically Vista will never run as fast as XP but by using FSautostart you can get rid of some of the overheads..I have 2 vista sysems (32bit 2gig ram and 64bit 4gig ram) as well as an xp64 server and in my experience with these I really wouldn
