im no expert or anything, but im guessing vista will be a few hundred dolalrs. and you should be able to play win xp games on it- windows oses usually always have backwards compatiblilty.

It depends on the version... there's going to be a lot, and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT of versions out. Like a basic basic one for 3rd world countries all the way to an "ultimate version" with everything included.

It will be sweet, however. Looking forward to this:

*cough* of coarse! *cough*

Vista will probably be harder go pirate than XP, but i'm sure crackers/hackers will manage to get by that... they usually do.. I MIGHT buy vista, but not for a while.. atleast not until I get a real 64-bit dual core CPU.
I want to experience the faster performance of Amd64 on vista from the start, not my washed out 3 year old 2.4ghz p4.

I will NOT go 64-bit.so therefore, as soon as Windows Vista goes on, I will either go with the Server ED of it or Windows Server 2003
