WINDOWS VISTA is really cool os.It has all the services of WINXP + it has simplified licensing and hardware troubleshooting.Use VISTA to discover the magic.

Look. I've seen Vista and I have used it, but Windows XP is better. Ofcourse, not for long. In I donn't know 5-6 months Vista will be better. You are probably asking yourself, WHY? I'll explain you. Vista is beautiful. It looks like... I cannot compare it to anythig. You have lots of adds and thing. Probably the most beautiful thing is Aero. BUT, if you want to use I you must have very, very STRONG garphich card. The thing why Vista is bad is that you cannot instal all programs on it. It don't have drivers to run some regulary used programs, and you cannot install games, maybe some. So my opinion is that you should wait abou half of year and then buy Vista. And one also great thing is new Office 2007. It is amazing.

for me, i think vista is still to buggy as it stands now, so i would probably wait till it becomes a really stable platform. i currently use xp pro.

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.
