    well worth the extra cost of an upgrade i'm sure..

    can anyone else think of a justifiable reason why i should upgrade from XP just yet? besides Bill Gates needing even more money in his pocket

    With the superior linux i couldn't justify buying vista.
    My dad has a disk with the full xp and i installed it for curiosity.

    hmm.. not really my thing i'm afraid...

    guess upgrading isnt for me, I'll just wait til my laptop takes a dump on me and dies, then get a newone with it preloaded... They will have ironed out a few known bugs by then hopefully

    never looked in2 linux in all honesty.. been brought up on macs & windows so i like 2 stick 2 wat i no.. don't have to go thru the whole newbie stage again then... not been a newbie since the early days of windows 95 and that was only coz I was only 11 and had been brought up on BBC Basics & Macs!

    Knackered then cos Vista is only a worthy upgrade if u want DX10 imo.

    It offers nothing worthy over XP other than that.

    you can scroll through playing movies on linux with xgl or beryl enabled so im not entirely sure what advantages vista has at all.
    Always better waiting for a service pack or 2 first anyway. I use linux entirely (windows partition for games) and i find it fulfils all my needs just fine

    I have vista Home Premium on my new laptop.....so whats it like....CACK!!!

    When i can be bothered i'll take it off and stick XP Pro on it, crashes all the time and half my programes don't run. Only nice thing is the Aero Glas thingy, but i think i can live without that for a stable operating system!
    No more Astra..........Now another German!
