He says it BEST!!!!!! You have to understand the new OS because it is the future. If you can't make your way around it, you're lost. For those that are IT professionals, you better get this now. They have training seminars for this and free Vista upgrades to everyone.

I'm probably not going to be getting it, but if I will it's probably going to be because of dx10.

yer i agree with you, windows vista is cool but they had added to many features and the themes and 3d effects use to much ram and they have no point other than to make it look better, i'd rather have performance then themes

You have obviously never used Vista. Before making an opinion about something, I suggest you actually learn something about it. Maybe you should read this page:

this wasn't one of the poll choices, but i went from xp to vista because i got vista for free through a microsoft promotion event. i just wish i had received the home premium edition so i'd have the dvd maker software,,,,i got the business edition which doesn't have dvd support...you have to get a dvd codec to watch dvd's, and would have to buy a dvd authoring program like Nero 7 to be able to create dvd's.
