Vista takes over 1gb of RAM by itself from my experience, so that'd explain the slowness. The OS takes all the available RAM. There's not really much you can do besides wait, imo.

XP and Win7 both use up less RAM. Linux uses even less RAM generally, but it's not for everybody. Those are the 3 options I'd suggest.
