Likely business edition for me, as ultimate will be very expensive, and probably not offered in VLK's

yes, it was also supposed to be uncrackable. (as was xp) Yet there has been a working version with a crack (never tried myself, but heard this from many places) available for download for quite a long time already.

And I can bet all the money I have that there will be viruses for vista pretty quickly after it's release, maybe even before the release.

If I ever get the Vista, It's going to be the Server editions or the Business edition.

Although, mammikoura, there's lots of viruses affecting all Windows versions. Why wouldn't Vista be spared of them?

THere are already cracks that exploit their SideBar. Well, it's not bad--but they manage to make Vista Sidebar work on XP.

There are other editions of Vista hardly worth mentioning:

Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

I highly doubt any of us on here will get those. I mean "Starter" edition? It's probably Windows for Dummies, lol.

Q: Is Windows Vista a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system?

A: Virtually every Windows Vista product edition (with the exception of Starter) ships with both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions on the same DVD. Microsoft expects the computer buying public to switch to x64 during Vista's lifetime. There will not be an Itanium version of Windows Vista.

I can already write a batch file that if ran under an admin account, it would fubar vista.

To show how much I hate Vista, I've installed my best LH system: Longhorn 4074.

I run it ATM, and, besides chopy mouse moves, it's alright. I guess it'll need a bit of tweaking. No IE7
