sadly, a lot of computers just cant handle vista at the time. and a lot of the stuff you mentioned is probably really easy to get on an xp, for free. and IE 7 sucks. firefox 2.02 is way better... it has frickin spell check EMBEDDED in it BRILLIANT

What feature does IE7 have on Vista that IE7 on Windows XP does not have? I was under the impression that they're the same codebase. Also Office 2007 will run under Windows XP as well as on Vista. Current Benchmarks that I've seen show the same programs running about 10% slower on Vista than on Windows XP.

Woow WIndows Vista.. what a hot subject i can say. I have talked a lot in my area with many of my friends and all of them had only positive thoughts about it. I can say that i was blow off by this new windows system. Some things certainly lack to it but this new look which Microsoft has incorporated in it certainly do the money you would give for it. I have waited this new system for 2 weeks and here i am using it. It was pretty hard for me to buy it because in my area it can't be found. So i had to ask a friend from another part of my country to order me. I am so happy using it and all i have are only words of gratitdue. I post here a short description about VISTA. Windows Vista contains hundreds of new features; some of the most significant include an updated graphical user interface (GUI) and visual style dubbed Windows Aero, improved searching features, new multimedia creation tools such as Windows DVD Maker, and completely redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista also aims to increase the level of communication between machines on a home network using peer-to-peer technology, making it easier to share files and digital media between computers and devices. For developers, Vista includes version 3.0 of the .NET Framework out of the box. The .Net Framework makes it significantly easier for developers to write high-quality applications than with the traditional Windows API.

Most of the new tools and features you could add with 3rd party software into xp.. As of best firewall? i would have to disagree with that, there are way better firewall software out there. But M$ did put a good effort in all the pre-bundle software with vista. In the end, as time passes any older windows will start to faze away especailly once microsoft stop supporting them like windows 2000 in the near future.

well...I am sure 300% that vista is much better than win xp... but I afraid that it needs to many things to work better than win xp. Most of the people might say that vista is slower..well it's slower because it requires more things such as: an example: ram 1gb..is good.. but you need a 2gh ram...to see that it isn't slow. and I sure microsoft wants people to buy more things for the computer..that's the real reason...

Yes it will happen sooner or latter, just like it happen with windows 98 to windows XP, User will migrate from windows XP to windows vista. Its just a matter of time and a matter of people getting better computer that support vista.
