    Windows Vista works fine for me.

    I'm not sure I can justify the expense unless new applications I want won't run on Vista.

    I've been using Vista trial for like... two years while constantly rearming + registry editing.

    I never bothered to get Vista so I'll be upgrading directly from XP to 7. I'm thinking first SP should be out by next spring and that's when I'll pick it up.

    If you are a college student, MS is offering a special, you can get Win 7 for about $30. You need a .edu email though, and you'll probably have to download it and burn an iso.

    Which reminds me, they gave away their "Expression" suite, which is kind of like Adobe suite (Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.), for free a while back. Once again only to students. I'm not sure if they are still offering that deal though. It's full of bugs, too.

    I also got MS Office 2007 for dirt cheap (~$50) when it came out. Once again full of bugs but not so bad since they released the latest update for it.

    I love the perks of being affiliated with a University.

    Hoping to hear more about Win7 in the near future. The bits I have heard were cautiously optimistic. Vista was a trainwreck. Little reason to upgrade and many reasons not to. Very poor adoption rate.

    My boss bought one of those mini laptops about a week ago from Best Buy for us both to use. It had Windows XP. A few days after that, he decided that he didn't like it because it was freezing during the anti-virus scans (which Best Buy recommended he put on the computer) and wanted a more powerful computer. We went there on Tues to trade it but they had stopped selling computers with the old versions of Windows and now he HAS to trade it for one with Windows 7. I guess it was just bad timing.

    Good question. Not the ones I know.

    Win 7 is good. Been using it for a year for gaming and such. Much cleaner/smoother than Vistaids. It's like an improved XP.

    Too damn expensive. I don't believe in pirating software (biting the hand that feeds. I'm a computer programmer), so I'll hold off until it is a necessity.
    Since I haven't booted into windows in over a month it is likely to be a long time before I need to upgrade to Windows 7.
    Besides, it has no new features that interest me.
    I'll get you my pretty, and your little hermit crab too!
