    Well that's good, perhaps by then they will have a Service Pack out for some of the simple bug fixes or something. Then again, probably within that 7 year period they will come out with the next version of Windows. (Windows Vienna)

    Anyways (Blizzard), you are right about Microshaft fooling the masses into getting a new Vista PC (or Laptop). Half of our customers (with the ISP) have already purchased them and could not get their dial-up working on it. Then, when we get it working (able ping out stuff), they can't get online using IE7. (I'm gonna stop rambling now)

    Heh, I don't really see how Vista is SOOO bad *<cough> SARCASM </cough>* I mean, come on! MS can't be THAT BAD ().

    Oh, well. I just want a really good operating system:

    - powerful
    - good appearance
    - fast
    - clean
    - simple

    Are there any OSs that exist with the above yet?! I love Vista's graphics. I wish that MS could make XP with the Vista graphics.

    Tell me about it..
    My dad recently bought a brand new laptop with 1G Ram and Vista. It's sooo slow. I'm really not a Vista fan.

    There is no way I'm getting a Vista PC. I have a couple machines on XP and they're staying that way as long as they're alive. My current main laptop is starting to get old though. I can feel its in its final months. I'm 100% going for a Mac. No Vista for me.

    Ubuntu? Fedora? Heck, Mac OS X?

    Well, although I have the quad core Intell QX6800, and the Nvidia 9800GTX video cards and 1 TB HDD and 9 gig ram, Vista isn't so bad really.

    Did I just say that?

    It does everything I need it to do, and with the hardware it is very fast. I load CS4 PhotoShop in 3 seconds, I downloaded season 1 of House MD the other day, 8.9 gig in 24 minutes. It does my Flash and Internet and downloads/uploads for my websites, so I don't have any complaints.

    It runs Oblivion and Morrowind and Evidence without a hitch so to me it's just another GUI based OS.

    I still prefer Fedora though, but I have yet to get another TB HDD to try it out on my new system.

    There's nothing wrong with Vista.. It's got more security than any other windows os.
