EDIT: Yes I have tried this on Vista. Yes it works better on Windows 7. Vista has the god-awful tendency to do the BSOD if I play games on it and I am using a high-end computer too (I have Vista and Windows 7 both on the same computer).
i run vista and it has never BSOD on me unless i oc'ed my old cpu too high, so it sounds like a hardware issue to be honest. its perfectly stable, i suggest checking your parts out.

Here's my problem with Windows 7 (it's a small one, but proved annoying at first).
Pinning pcsx2.exe to the taskbar causes all sorts of problems.
Pinning a shortcut to pcsx2.exe to the taskbar does not.
I'm not sure why this is...
Anyone want to verify this?
1. Right click the executable and click pin to taskbar)
2. Open it and see if it works...
if yes then great! otherwise unpin from the taskbar, create a shortcut and then try pinning the shortcut and see if that works.
They removed the Windows Classic Theme
That alone makes it worth less than Vista in my mind.
7 should run PCSX2 the same as, if not better than, Vista when it's finally released. It's the same drivers so it comes down to the little tweaks they have done, it's hard to imagine it getting worse performance.

they didn't have the XP theme in vista, that pissed me off. I wouldn't even use vista's theme if the XP one was there (and no, I'm not tweaking vista basic to look like XP)
