What is the difference between Windows XP and Vista?

The difference between windows XP and Vista are: The Box colors, instead of being solid colors, they're translucent. The Text on the boxes differ as well. You can also download widgets on the Vista. However, the XP is faster.

vista is also trying to look/work like an i-mac with many small extras compared to xp although does not really work as is sort of half way between an imac and an xp
