Yup, I'd say Vista is slow.  A friend of mine has Vista and Ubuntu 7.10 
on his Athlon X2 3800.  Ubuntu is about 10 times quicker!

Sods law though, he's one of these "I want to install as many adware 
based smileys as I possibly can on MSN" types.  I've given up on that 
one until he screws Vista up so much that it won't work.  He has Ubuntu 
7.10 on his PC, I'll advise him to start using that.

I've also heard about one of my dad's friends who has bought a Celeron 
PC from Tescos which is running Vista (god help it, if a dual core PC 
with 2GB ram can't cope, god knows what a Celeron will be like).  She 
had problems with the McAfee Anti-Virus that Sky supplied with her 
broadband not working, I'm hoping that I can go over and demonstrate 
Ubuntu 7.10 with it's flashy effects.
