It's always nice to have a few throwaway stats about Windows Vista that you can give to someone when you are combating someone who believes that XP is "good enough" for them. I'd like to share a few with you over the coming weeks and I'll start with a new page on www.windowsvista.com that has some interesting stats on Vista that you might not know about.

Look forward to hearing your stories about how you've used these useful tidbits.
There is an interesting post over at blogs.technet.com
6 seconds from sleep...that's hilarious.
Hi Greg - I take it you're not getting 6 seconds from sleep with your machine... I've got a new Lenovo laptop which comes up from sleep in about 6 seconds - what hardware are you running?
Here in my Vista setup, I resume from Sleep in about 5-6 seconds too... And it´s a self-made machine, with installed Vista by myself. I´m pretty happy with Vista so far, and I´m using it for about 10 months now...
Indeed James, I also have a new Lenovo Laptop (T61) and it indeed takes about 6 secs....
Great to hear Andre - i do find that it's even quicker on a newly built machine with no apps running when you goto sleep, but that's to be expected.
"PCs running Windows Vista that are equipped with 512 MB memory experience a performance boost of up to 40% with ReadyBoost technology"
Why would anyone with 512mb pay a price premium for flash memory fast enough to work with ReadyBoost instead of just buying some cheap RAM instead?
That whole list is a joke and I actually like vista.
I'm having a lot of problems upgrading to Vista Ultimate on a new laptop. The process is very complex and I'm not getting any helpful support from HP or Microsoft.
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be more than happy to help
There's a couple of reasons why actually:
* One off need for a bit more RAM - e.g. an infrequently used app demands more RAM
* Temporary boost of RAM before a PC Refresh
* User doesn't know how to add RAM but can put a flash drive in a USB slot
Sorry you find the whole list a joke - perhaps you could share some of the things you like in Vista? I particularly like the fact that with Vista I'm 60% less likely to get a virus or malware compared to XP SP2.
