Vista slowness...

Vista slow? Says who?

Yesterday I made a post that said Vista seemed slow to me. I removed it five minutes after posting, because it just didn't seem right. I've had Vista Business running on a test machine that I've used every day for the past month or so. I've never had a problem in terms of speed. But when I installed Vista premium on my personal machine it seemed slow.

After clicking through to the post of Carl Campos from the above blog I read this:
As I write this, my 2 GB system...


And things seemed to click. The test system had 2 GB of Ram, my personal system has 1GB. Further, I have different antivirus suites (both symantec, but one corporate, and the other personal). I think these two aspects might be the difference.
