  • performance of OS

    Am I being crazy by running my windows Vista OS in the windows classic style(in every way) just because I feel this will improve my "cute" (E-System) performance??

    Re: performance of OS

    We're not really in a position to assess your mental state if you have a read of Daniel's articles regarding Aero, you'll see that turning it off can improve the performance of your system. As for whether running the classic UI will do the same, then chances are there will be a small improvement. However this is something that you will need to judge for yourself. Everybody's hardware is different.

      Actually turning off Aero can decrease performance depending on your video card. If you use onboard video is will help performance but if you have a high end video card then you're switching the rendering of windows elements from the GPU to the CPU.

        What are the specs of your system (Processor / RAM / GPU)?

            No, I mean:
            How fast is your processor (e.g. Core2Duo 2GHz)?
            How much RAM (memory) is fitted (e.g. 2 Gigabytes)?
            What sort of graphics card is fitted (e.g. Nvidia 8600 256Mb)?
