I really don't like Vista, I think that Microsoft just took a bunch of good ideas from other companies and used it as their own to create one big mess of things. It is suppose to be "User Friendly" and that just isn't going to fly with me.

Another bad thing is, service and support on Vista will be EXTREMELY LIMITED, right now only the development team really knows how to deal with anything, they haven't had time to write out fixes on it yet.

With it being a new operating system in NEW stages, I would shy away from it until we know how stable it is, let the test of time help you. Windows XP is still good, and it doesn't need to be replaced yet, it has time left...

Yeah... XP works fine, is "relatively" more secure and well kinda like getting a face plate for a 360 I'd rather have my stuff functional than pretty. I leave you with a quote...

If it's not broke don't **** with it.

XP is finally secure and good to go ... so they made another POS OS. It's really not too bad ... but Im not converting yet. Im using Windows XP PRO X64 ... the most secure OS on the market. It's so secure you can't even install software. LOL.
