    Eeeks! Heaven forbid. Vista totally rocks when you know what you're doing
    and have the right hardware.

  4. I have a laptop computer with Vista home premium, and a desktop with Windows
    XP, and I'm satisfied with that arrangment. So there!

    If more people understood the premise of...

    "Use what works best for YOU, and makes YOU most productive",

    we wouldn't get threads like this. Personally, I could care less if people
    used Goobertronics Buttmonkey OS, or whatever. As long as it gets what you
    want to get done, why gripe or post tripe about other people's choices?

    My main computer uses vista because it is a good set up and works. My
    laptop is two years old and xp works well on it. I like both OS and I
    know vista will not work on my laptop so I have not tried to update it.
    This works for me and is NOT a gripe about vista.

    I agree, I would absolutely NEVER go back to XP. My company deals with
    Banks as our Customers and the more progressive institutions are starting to
    migrate. Then there are those still trying to limp along on Win 98 / 2000.
    Man I hate that!

    Personally Vista has opened a world of entertainment with eye popping
    graphics in my home that makes my neighbors drool with jealousy.

    For me, the graphics don't mean anything. What concerns me is that it does
    everything that I need it to do, as good or better than XP. As I always say.
    Use what works best for YOU, and makes you most productive.

    The company I work for rolled out Win2K about the time XP came on the
    scene. We have been asking for an upgrade for 6 years. We figured now
    that Vista is here, we would get XP. Finally the word came down,
    Corporate has decided to join the 21st Century. The are beginning the
    rollout of Vista and Office 2007, to the tune of a cool $1.5 Mil. which
    figures out to about $500 a PC.

    I hate Windows 7. If I had to do it over, I would never switch from XP.
