I just bought new computer that do not support Vista. Now the new version is coming fast. I still feel like I am happy forever with WindowsXP and do not want to buy a new version anymore.

But this is the way of business. What can we do?

Have you ever try Vista and how do you like it?

Well at the moment I'm still using XP. XP works good and will be supported for still a few years. But I'm prefering Vista more and more. Of course it needs a higher equipped hardware than XP and it's pretty expensive so far, but apart from this I like it. By the way most of the driver problems are fixed up to now. And SP1 was also a step in the right direction...

Greets,
LeBron

Vista is basically good as far as what I do with my computer. The only thing that bothers me is the incompatibility between some multimedia files and the system. So basically, I recommend it if your PC has a good or even high performance.

I don't like Vista - it uses too much memory and many of my programs aren't compatible with it.

Anyway, I understand Microsoft is going to replace it with another OS soon.
