Default Re: Whos getting Vista

Not me!.....I won't be getting Vista anytime soon....not until after sp1 comes out anyway. Give them time to work out the bugs and make it better.

Plus, I feel it's pretty expensive, more expensive than an OS should be.

im still getting vista.... a first time release will ALWAYS have problems, so by shooting it down before it even comes out is normal. every os had and has problems. I say try it out yourself and then be the judge.

you don't have to reinstall/format anything..just install it as a second os...then when u don't want it anymore, uninstall the bootloader then get rid of all the vista stuff...

How do you do that? Because I want to load XP on right now as well as vista for compatibility issues.

Well when I ordered a Dell computer - I got a free upgrade to Vista on the 31st January. The only thing is - the online ordering system for the upgrade does not accept some of the system codes that are meant to be accepted.

Dell said they were going to fix it before Christmas but it's still not working!
