Default Will you use Vista or XP?

The question is, when Vista will be out, will you move on Vista or stay on XP?

As for me, I will get vista cause all the games coming up will be for Vista only, well that's common sense. It's how marketing works.

I'm not getting vista. Price is too high and it will eat up resources like no tomorrow. I'm gonna ride XP until it dies out or possibly just get a mac and vista basic to dual boot with. I think 400 dollars for windows is too much, microsoft is taking advantage of consumers in my opinion.

Unless your into more audio/video/media type apps it's probably not worth it for the average home user.

For me I'm going to get it as the media center version (home premium) is supposed to be sweet.........that's what I use my PC for most anyway.

Until there is actually a DX10 game that interests me enough to make the jump (which will be major considering the hardware required) I'll stay with XP

Why would I use M$ software at all?

I'm perfectly happy with Mandriva 2007!
