    Well...Vista can only get better from where it is now, and it's supposed to be halfway usable as-is if you manage to shut off the "features" that constantly search and index the hard drive, and ask you five times if you're really really REALLY super DUPER sure you want to do everything.

    On the other hand, XP can do everything Vista can do, except run DirectX 10 and show you a side-view of all your windows stacked on top of each other. I predict that DirectX 10 will be backported to XP because the people most likely to have gaming rigs capable of running DX10 games are also the people least likely to bog down their machines with a half-finished OS, and Microsoft doesn't want to give up an inch of ground to OpenGL lest DirectX should lose its appeal as the killer "makes all games work with all hardware" graphics framework.
