Default XP or Vista on new laptop?

I just ordered a macbook pro which I plan to use VMWare on in order to load a version of windows (hopefully temporary until PT3 and Hud and Stars all have a native mac version). I've never used Vista, but what would you guys load? Vista (and what version of that) or XP?

XP - better performance and better compatability

I prefer Vista, both on my laptop, my desktop and my mediacenter.

You'll get better support with Vista, but either is fine. You won't notice much difference. If you do get vista, then turn OFF aero as it'll eat your batteries alive [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

get vista if you get a new computer...

every new OS uses more resources...

its easy to handle and will improve with those servicepacks...

if you have 2 gigs memory get vista, else get xp

Take into account I'm not very computer savvy, but I spent 5 hours trying to get all my poker stuff set up on a Vista laptop before I gave up and went back to XP.

Please use Vista, we need more beta-testers with all this poker software. PM me your email address so when I finally am forced to switch I can ask you how to make everything work. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I think I'll probably just load XP. it's only temporary anyway because as soon as PT3/Hud are available for Mac with a native copy, I'll be using Leopard exclusively.

Edit: thanks for the opinions guys
