Default Re: Vista Goes on Sale!

I don't want to get Vista yet, and will be scared of getting it in the first place.
For one thing, most of my programs that I use won't work on it probably.

You can still use it, but it just won't be officially supported by Microsoft, meaning no more updates or whatnot.

I think Windows XP is supported until 2012, but I can't find specific dates.

Thank Al, I turned off automatic updates six months ago, I'll be over 80 in 2012, & probably would have hung up my mouse by then, either that, or I'll be pushing up the daisies, dead, finito!

Now now...that's a bit rash. Each person has their own preferences. Windows isn't for everyone, neither is Mac OS X or Linux.
