    It's always better to buy the Windows operating system a couple of years after it comes out, so the problems can be rectified.

    I will probably buy it a few months after it comes out, if not shortly after it comes out.

    So I can learn it, tweak it, ect..

    That is what Service Packs are for, to fix issues....

    Im sorry :(


    So Mr Malice what features are you most looking forward to from Vista? I would say easy access to my files and what not (even though i kind of have that now) plus the whole media centre side of it :D

    I'll wait and see how well it takes off first. I may download it though and install it on my POS computer and see how it works on it.

    I already have an operating system that does all the things Vista claims it's going to be able to do and more, and I don't have to buy new hardware to run it, either. Why bother with Vista? :confused:

    You make a living off of it, so I can understand your need to learn Vista. Anyone else is just a masochist. :D

    No way could I ever justify the price for something that really isn't going to change my computer experience that much.

    As some of you know, I'm in the process of building my computer. I'm going to load it up with the latest windows XP and in about 3 years, then Vista.

    How much will vista be? because it would be aload on your cost anyway if you didn`t wait 3 years (or more!) Xp pro is only just coming down in price

    I want Aero Glass, dammit!

    There are going to be anywhere from 3 to 6 variations of Vista. The really cheap version will not have the neat Vista options, but will only cost a couple of hundred dollars. The top business version will probably be similarly priced to the current top business version of XP.
