There is no such thing as "Windows XP Vista." There is Windows XP and there is Windows Vista. They are two different versions of the Windows operating system (XP is older than Vista). As to which is better (XP or Vista) if that is your question -- I think most people would say that XP is better, but this probably depends on which operating system you are used to and what type of work you…
Vista has DX 10 when WIndows XP doesnt. While Vista was suppose to be the upgrade to XP, it had a lot of problems during the first launch and it took awhile to fix everything. Vista is suppose to run faster, and use less resources on your system. But Vista failed and Microsoft then released Windows 7 as the replacement to Vista.
The major difference to date is that Windows 98 is no longer supported by Microsoft. Another notable difference is that Windows XP provides greater stability as a whole. A vast magority of programs available are only usable on Windows XP/Vista machines, and like Microsoft, no longer supported for the older operating system.
RadioShack you are wondering if it is possible to downgrade from windows vista basic edition to windows XP on your present computer?
If your computer had Windows XP on it and you upgraded to Vista, I heard you could call Microsoft and tell them how displeased you were with Vista and wish to downgrade back to XP. They will then deactivate your Vista Product Key and give you a XP product key, you will also have to have a Windows XP cd.
