Also do you think Vista is better? Is Vista the future or can I safely stick to XP for the next years?

Vista is alright at the moment, I'm not having too many problems with it. I can play all my games, and all the mod programs work fine.

Windows 7 (Vienna) is coming soon so you might as well just stick with XP until then. Don't use the standard XP though. I would recommend TinyXP or DarkLite if you want an unbloated windows client.

Is tinyXP like a lite version of windows XP only it's faster? Does it have the same features as standard XP? Sorry for all the questions if they're annoying.

Here says it allows you to customize your XP install, remove the things that you don't need, etc.

Holy shit it's for Vista too? So basically, it'll make my computer more efficient program-wise?

Why not just remove some programs through Control Panel?  I know you can't remove IE, but most other crap can be removed.

nLitle is just yet an other GUI for unattended installation of Windows. If you want to make a proper clean customize version of XP just use unattended installation, it's really powerful. Thanks to it I have been able to make to dispatch XP on multiple partition (one for the Core, one for Program Files and one for Document And Settings).
Take a look here, if you are interested: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/

Vista is perfectly functional as is, though you may want to add another 2 gigs of RAM to that setup (preferrably by switching from a 2x1GB to a 2x2GB setup).

Oh, and removing things via nLite or using things like tinyXP is pointless on that setup.

I meant will games still be supported for XP in the future. For instance a new awsome game comes out but I can't play it because XP is too old and not used anymore.

Based on what happened with Halo 2.... I think it's safe to say that where games don't support older OS's, there will be patches to fix that.

Within reason, of course. Don't expect a patch for COD5 to support Win95.... I mean, if you're using 95, I thiiink it's time for an upgrade.
