1st:When Vista was annonced, codename Longhorn (it had other codenames, but it's the only one I remember), everybody though it was going to be the best, and everybody tough it was for what? 4-5 years ago? Windows "7" won't go out soon, you can be sure of it, Microsoft never release their windows in time, and it's normal, it's hudge.
2nd: I loved XP since I studied in computer science at first, and installing anything other then XP was really not fun. I had my share of viruses on XP more than any other windows since the internet, and the viruses, bloomed while XP dominated the market. But I installed vista from day one (I bought my computer from dell 2 weeks before vista popped, and they shipped me the premium version) and I love it. Okay, at the start vista wouldn't recognise my burner... wich is wierd, and I had some problems of drivers. But after 2-3 months, everything was fine. I never caught viruses again, never had to restart my PC because of a bug, and everything is at it's place. The games into a "games" folder, my music into "my music" folder, etc. Not everything is "my files" or wathever (I'm not english so the terms are not the same, sorry if I'm not that good in english). Vista it great, it's faster on the start too, it's beautifull, etc.
Still, when they'll pop the next windows, I'll download it! I always want the newest things to see! It's better than always talk about the same stuff.
PS: BUT I never paid for a windows (only for my dell sadly, but it was a real deal), I download them (sorry M$, no, that's a joke, lol). So I can't say I would like to pay 250$ or so to update from XP to vista, frankly, I wouldn't even pay 100$. 50$ would be my maximum, but it would be a 50$ well spent since I generally spend my money on my universty/beer/drinks/restaurant/videogames/gadgets/and finally gifts for my family and friends, lol.
