I was thinking about switching to it, but my dad told me its "about the same as vista." i've been using the same computer with xp since age 9.

Ha! Only on the outside. It runs far lighter underneath. Look at it this way, sitting idle with nothing running, Vista uses about 50% Available memory, leaving only half for the user. Windows 7 uses about 1%. So while it may look like Vista, it's a whole new operating system.

I'm still not convinced we need to replace XP just yet, but as you mentioned, it's getting a little long in the tooth and at some point they'll pull support. I'm just thankful that the replacement isn't Vista.

yeah, when my dad made that comment you should have seen the face i made. one of our computers has vista and it's really hard to use. i didn't really like it. i know xp in and out by now.
