It was a family computer, upgraded from Windows ME (now THAT sucked!), to XP Pro and eventually to SP2. Mostly the kids used it...which is why I had so many security issues; I worked mainly from an XP laptop that has no issues. I now have them on an iMac that I administer, and I work with the Mac Pro at home, the XP laptop when on the road.
The games I play are Flight Simulator, as I'm a pilot and can practise instrument flying on it, and Combat Flight Simulator, just for fun. Both run fine in Vista Ultimate, and in fact I'm quite pleased with the frame rates I'm getting. I only use Vista at home for these games. Everything else I have migrated over to my Mac Pro for myself (using the XP laptop when I travel), or the iMac for the kids.
The UAC on Vista is a real pain though, my biggest beef.
