    Well Vista SP2 isn't that bad but I personally don't see the point why anyone what's to go back.

    What has WinVista what Win7 hasn't? Or do you mean "bored" because you don't get any error messages and there has no hour-taking work to be done? ;):p

    Anyways - why should an OS be "interesting"? It's just an OS. If you want it to be interesting, play games, watch movies, listen to music etc.

    You don't buy new shoes if you find walking boring, do you?

    If you are getting "bored" of your OS you're spending too much time looking at it and very little time actually doing real work on it.

    Service pack 2 is a big s**t thing for vista, it messed up 3 systems for me (very very slow booting etc). Personally i would never go back from windows 7 to vista. Windows 7 is a very good os compared to vista (not that vista sucks, but after updating to sp2 its a big let down).

    Dynamite and/or handguns always make computers more interesting...temporarily. Best if doing with someone else's computer. :eek:

    If you're REALLY bored. Install Windows for Workgroups v3.11 and the necessary components (and probably an OLD PCI network card that had WFW drivers available) to get high-speed internet working. Hell, WTF. Go for DOS and use the Arachne v1.70 DOS web browser via dialup. After all this, refer back to my first sentence in this post.

    Why do you want to go back to Windows Vista. You will get bore sooner or later again. In my opinion, I think you better stick with windows 95 or windows ME. Lots of fun....Ha ha.

    I actually prefer Vista over Win7, boot times are the same and at least you don't have those giant micky mouse icons on the task bar. If you get a slipstreamed sp2 version of vista and load that up I think you'de be surprised just how stable it is. I don't get any problems with any of my systems and even my Mum likes it, which is a miracle, as she thought XP was a dog. Even though I have copies of win7 I'll not be upgrading soon, it just looks like it's vista with a party hat on.

    XP vs 7 is one thing. But Vista vs 7? No comparison. 7 is far superior in every way. I still have one test system with a Vista partition on it. Fired it up the other day to see if there was anything left to back up before formatting it.. and it's just awful compared to 7. If you don't like how 7 looks, you can change it. (The "giant Mickey Mouse icons" for example.. you can make the task bar just like Vista's with a couple clicks.) Looks aside, it's just a lot smoother and more reliable. If you're going to downgrade, do it right and drop back to XP.

    And have to agree, if you're bored, install a Linux disto onto a spare partition or a VM. It'll keep you busy for quite a long time. I don't mean Compiz and all that nonsense, get to really know the OS.
