Are you going to use Windows Vista?

I am satisfied with XP Pro. It does what I want it to and allows me to play all of my games. As some of my games are older, I don't think they will run on Vista, and from what I have read there is not that much improvement in performance while it does use more resources to run it. So I will stick with XP.

Give me the money for the ram. I forgot what pc whatever my ram was but i do know it is expensive so i don't want vista as yet. Also i would want vista when they make patches for all of my software. That way i can still use them. So give me like 7 months and i will upgrade.

Windows Vista is a good one with problems that i don't like. The graphics are good but not much programs support Vista, that you will need. There were also reports of Vista deleting programs by itself without the user's permission, like illegal ones. I'm still using XP since there is not much of a difference from XP and Vista except the graphics (BTW you'll need a strong computer that can support Vista with a good graphics card). So in conclusion I suggest you hold onto XP for a while till most programs support Vista and possibly might make it better as the months pass by so I hope this helped u.

I would expect that most computer users will end up with Windows Vista eventually, whether they currently intend to or not. The fact that Windows XP is more than adequate is irrelevant, Windows 98 was also more than good enough for most people but few have not upgraded from it by now. I do not intend to install Windows Vista for a while yet because they are still many compatability issues. The hardware problem can be serious for someone with older components and the manufacturers are unlikely to issue drivers for parts that are a few years old, so many people would need new sound cards or graphics cards. The same situation applies with a lot of software programs.

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. I am using windows Vista and i am very content with it

Perhaps the best thing about Windows Vista is the most obvious: its new interface. With transparent animated windows that swoosh into place, subtle and elegant colors, a new Start menu, and plenty of other changes, this is the most beautiful version of Windows you've seen. If you've ever had Mac envy, this is the Windows you want--it's the most Mac-like interface yet.Switching between open windows using Alt-Tab in previous versions of Windows was always a shot in the dark, as you never quite knew to which window you'd switch, or even which ones were open. That has all changed in Windows Vista. Press Alt-Tab, and Windows Flip 3D springs into action, displaying thumbnails of all your open windows in a gorgeous, 3D stack. You can then flip through them until you find the one you want.

I have Windows XP Media Center edition and a computer that's about a year and a half old. Windows Vista requires more computer memory and speed, so I'll wait until I buy a new computer before I get Vista. I still have a computer running Windows 98SE, and an even older computer running a version of Windows 3.0 called "Windows for Workgroups". Both these computers come in handy for programs and devices that run poorly -- or not at all -- on the newer operating system.
