Oh well, I'm still using XP Pro, Vista to me just some fancy stuffs and useless in most of my tasks. So Vista isn't for me, so glad that I did go for it. :D

Interesting too as Micro$oft just announced they extended support for WinXP through June 2010. This is why I will most likely bypass an upgrade to Vista as I don't see it offering anything over what my current WinXP setup can do.

I said from the beginning that MS would do this because Vista is a piece of crap, all those annoying popups and the ridicolous hardware requirements to make it run at the same pace as XP has made most companies NOT use Vista. I read somewhere not to long ago 90% of Vista sales are OEM, thats SAD !!!

they should have spent the R&D money on XP 64 bit instead of vista imo :)

If you spin Windows Vista CDs backwards, they will play Satanic messages. :evil:

Worse yet, if you spin them forward, they'll install Vista! vmad

hahaha... Thanks, that's made my day! :lol:

So far I haven't found a single good reason to upgrade to Vista! In fact, all my friends have downgraded their new PC to XP pro.
Way to go Mr. Gates :D

Nobody has ever given me a really soild reason for needing to upgrade...When I heard that Windows 7 would be coming out soon months ago then I new that Vista was nothing but a stopgap like ME was...a way to try out new ideas and have the public test them for you....Man I love my job (tech support):lol:

I just got a new laptop with Vista and works fine, no driver issues, fast, pretty, no big deal it's just a computer. I normally use XP x64 but prefer the Vista interface. But then I don't use old gear; most is less than a year old. Everything works with no fuss. I must be doin' something wrong ;-)a
