I have xp on my 7 year old pc connected to my 40 inch tv :) but vista came installed on the dell laptop that i got so im kinda stuck with it really, xp drivers for the lappy are not that great really as dell dont supply them so a good search through the net for them was a bit of a pain, not too many problems with performance really but some features are totally useless i would agree
