but I agree, the prices on their products are way too high, though I guess they will make them higher and higher as long as people pay for it. Linux ftw!

I'm glad microsoft is doing this, and they would sell alot more copys if their price was lower.

I dont really "pirate" stuff, even though I manage to get a great deal of software for free. I dont download software from the internet but have my own ways of getting alot of software.

True, I updated a computer recently to SP2 which was running fine on SP1 and it slowed it right down, a clean install later, and it worked fine....

We all love to hate microsoft, but then we all continue to use it, so what does that say about us?

Personally I have found using open source a great benefit, an example earlier, GIMP instead of Photoshop etc, even Open office, is giving Microsoft office a run for its money these days........

I won't be upgrading to Vista until its absolutely necessary, thats more from a really bad experience using RC1 where it killed my computer, it could of been something I have done, but I would rather upgrade in 12-18 months time, when the flaws have been ironed out

^^I'm using linux for everything except gaming. And maybe gaming too after a while, so I can completely uninstall windows. And I haven't even opened windows in a few weeks.
