...when I can get it free from the trashcan at work, still shrink-wrapped and labeled "for distribution with a new PC only", like I've gotten Win95, WinME and XP Home. I'm still looking for a Win2K installation pack, maybe after Vista rolls out...
This is the same way I get my PCs. I welcome bloated, resource-hungry Vista. I know that nearby, some idiot will install it, his system will grind to a halt, and he'll go out and buy a new pc, putting his old system out at the curb where I'll find it. If its an upgrade from what I'm using I'll either mix and match components, part the rest out on ebay. I'm currently showing a gross profit $3400 over what I'd paid for ALL the computers combined that I owned before 2001 (7), so its a win-win situation for me. So g'wan, upgrade soon, and frequently.
All you Apple fanatics should read up on what Stevie did to the Apple II and Newton users and developers. If he did that to his loyalists, what'll you think he'll do if the opportunity to gain a huge market share comes along? He'll dump the Mackintosh minority in a heartbeat. He's the same creature as Gates, a soul-less capitalist.
