What significance does the number seventeen have? It’s the number of computers I’ve downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP for my customers.

I ran a benchmark utility (Geekbench) on one of them before downgrading, there was a 250 point difference between Vista and XP (in favor of XP). Ouch.

  1. Yeah, that sounds about right.

    I think I had about a 200 point shift in my geekbench score when I downgraded on the laptop. By the way, Jared D loves Vista. Yeah, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be his friend anymore. 😛
