    I was hoping to upgrade to Windows Vista and watch/record HDTV using my Xbox 360 as a set top box (through Vista) but Microsoft is being really stringent with the DRM process.

    It seems like I would have to buy a computer that was certified to handle cable card 2.0 instead of being able to buy the cablecard tuner separately and attach it to my computer.

    The ones coming out in a few weeks are like at least $3,000 and they go up to $15,000. So I'm going to have to wait.

    On the other end I plan on using SEO/Keyword Elite (4.0) a lot and I don't know whether or not it will run on Windows Vista.

    Why change to Vista, when you are been using something that works just fine (XP)?
    Its all about business, and as someone mention before: "people are going to end up forced to use Vista in a few years time" because everything else will be "only" Vista compatible.
    Graphics and security are the most.... everything else is basically the same exact thing. It is just for give you a hard time trying to find the Network Connections icon/window, which is located at a different place, when you finally find it, you are not surprised at all, why? because it is exactly the same as it is on XP.

    Anyway.., I will stick with XP until that day that the "X" product says: "Compatible with Vista or higher versions only" .... lol.

    If you want an OS that is more "cool" then get Vista, and at that Premium, if you want to get the job done, XP.

    I haven't much chance to use vista, but I like the new icons and graphics. It's probably a matter of time that people begin to switch to vista.

    Well. I dont agree that a "a new product can not be released that has worse features then the older one". May be it has some unique features to compete with but "Old is always Gold". And we count the majority not the exceptional. May be you are benefitted with the whole lot with VISTA, but with my little experience with vistas, only a ignorant fool will go for vistas leaving XP's...:p

    for me XP is the best, cause i have low config hardware and cant run Vista, although I can get vista as low as 2$ but I need more 200$ to upgrade me system and then run vista,
    Thas why I am relying On XP.

    I would wait another couple months maybe even until Next Janurary since their are still kinks to work out with Vista and many developers.

    I agree with ARonald. I will probably upgrade to Vista once the first service pack is released. There are still several programs that are incompatible with Vista at the moment.

    There is an article on page 18 of the May issue of PC World Magazine. Only about a third of it's early users said that it was much better than Windows XP. And only a little over 50% said that they were satisfied with it.

    So yeh... I think that speaks for itself. I myself already knew Vista was gonna suck it. It sounded like a resource hog. And not to mention many software and hardware are either incompatible with it, or they have issues when running on Vista.

    I use OS to run stuff, not to play with OS itself. So Win XP for me.

    Windows Xp is better than the Vista in many senses.. so i dont think so that ... Vista will take place of Vista..

    I have to agree, when I was in the stores w/ the PCs on display (running vista) the transparency idea WAS messy (especially for a "busy" and non solid colored background). Not really liking it..

    one computer in the main display area with Vista on it and guess what ?
    The salesman there was demonstrating something to a customer and suddenly
    the blue screen of death appeared ! When oh when will M$ fix this problem ?

    If you can do everything you need to do on your current computer, running XP, why spend the money and upgrade? My current configuration is as good as I want and does what I need. Additionally, most of the programs I use are not Vista compatible as far as I know.

    And my final thought is that I'd rather stick with XP with all its bugfixes than install Vista and invite 'goodness knows what' onto my system!
