As far as I know XP is still faster but it really seems like the very first time a new OS from Microsoft is stable before Servicepack 3 or 4. If I could only say that about the actual Office , just had to revert to Word 2000 from 2007 for a client for a simple thing like printing labels without blanks without having to program fields. Not to speak of the useless ribbon bars which make most macros to malfunction. Or if Outlook 2007 could print selected text only as before up to version 2003 or export selected contacts only, the list is endless. So, to be safe, I would wait with any upgrade on a production machine for some time despite the promising beta tests.
