    I wonder, if MS do not have people to develop DX 10 for XP or just it is not possible. I guess, based on the IE7, that IE8 will be available only in Vista, so I will be forced to use it anyway.

    You can always use something much better than IE7 or IE8... ;)

    There is not. Opera causes headaches and FF is too easy to use, IE is more challenging. ;)

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Whilst looking at some computer specs for Dell laptops I came across the following on a configuration page.

    The combination of a 15.4" WSXGA+ screen & 128MB ATI® MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1300 graphic card will not be compatible with next generation Microsoft operating system Vista Home Premium and Vista Business!

    There was no explamation as to why this combination would be incompatible, looking at a list of minimum recommende requirements for Vista on another site I was still at a loss for the incompatability. Have MSFT made a system that is incompatible with 15.4 widescreen, or is this Radeon card incompatible with it. Seems odd that anyone would still be knocking up windows computers that are incompatible with the next OS on the eve of it's launch

    Service pack 3 for XP is due out in 2008 I will consider Vista after that.

    Simple, I'll call my OEM to do the upgrade.
    1st on the list, hardware:
    Upgrade my pentium 4 with HT technology.
    RAM. Upgrade to the max. amount of 1GB.

    Like a few others, I too vote "None" --no surprise, eh? :p :ninja: -- I'm more than happy with my M$ free home network, and wouldn't ever look back.

    I will probably use Ultimate because I want all options.

    I don't know why it was necessary but I voted again -> Windows Vista Home Premium . Reasons would be because of its price and because it includes everything I need . Just to add that I am not gonna buy it on 30 January . I first need to upgrade my own computer or buy a new one and after that I will most likely get Windows Vista HP edition . I am waiting for Windows Vista SP1 and ,of course , for Windows XP SP3 :)

    If I can get rid of apps tied to Windows, XP will be the last Microsoft OS. Otherwise, I wait Vista SP1 and XP SP3
    Most of Vista features aren´t interesting to me and DRM here and there is a no-no for me

    I voted None- although I suspect ultimately I will like most people have to switch when MS turn out the lights on XP.
    I've beta tested Vista extensively and I just don't like it. I feel it controls my computer rather than me controlling it.....
    I remember first using XP and despite its unfamiliarity I liked it and felt it was something new and exciting. Vista just feels terminally dull and no great progression from what I've already got on my PC. Plus there's a definite slowdown in responsivenss on my PC. I don't like DRM and I don't like MS trying to monopolise the PC security market.
    That said Linux is not quite my cup of tea and Macs are an unknown quantity for me so I'll wait a couple of years and see how Vista shapes up, whether Ubuntu truely becomes what I want or take a trip to the darkside and become a Mac user.
    Home premium looks the best bet if I do weaken..... but boy will it have to be vLited!!

    A "none" vote here. Both of my towers will handle it. But I did not build 2 two fairly high-end machines just to be "able" to satisfy the OS.

    None. In fact, unless I really need to, I have no intention to ever use it...

    If it comes with a new machine, fine I'm willing to go through the learning mode period, but otherwise I'll try to stay with XP as long as I can. My vote is 'none'.

    No opinion in the moment, but i have to buy a new laptop in 2007. So if it would be preinstalled, i will have a closer look to stability, compatibility to my main applications, etc.

    I won't be using Vista ... So I voted None. I recently purchased a new laptop that came with the free upgrade to Vista coupon, which I won't be using. :ninja:

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    None.

    Besides my belief M$ should change the name to Vista ME.

    I'm running XP pretty well here with 1GB DDR RAM.

    With Vista ME it's going to take 2GB DDR2 to achieve the same performance. What'll the RAM cost? Like $300-$500. Uh no thanks.

    this forum is biased!
    well i have just bought a new laptop, easily big enough for vista.

    im getting Vista Home Premiem, it does everything i want (its like XP PRO plus a bit more) and the upgade came with my laptop, its ordered and i will recieve it when its released.

    cant wait, vista hopefully will be a big improvment, im looking forward to it, having not tried any of the 'betas', it should be a new experience for me.

    I voted for "none."

    I'm still using Win2K SP4 on the desktop workstation.

    My new laptop earlier this year came with WinXP but that's OK.
