Vista running great and stable here and I'll never go back to XP. Drivers have come a real long way since release and many of the games I tried run like they did in XP


Hmm..

With Crysis out, I'm tempted. But it's such a horribly un-optimized system hog that I just can't take the leap yet. I'm hoping SOMETHING comes along that forces me to "upgrade", eventually.

Something like you computer does a complete and total meltdown destroying the CPU, Motherboard, hard drives, and any cards you have plugged in, not alone the memory, and your significant other accidently snaps your XP install disc in half?

Yes.. and that someone would slip on the pavement outside and accidentally lob his Vista Ultimate into my (new) DVD drive, that would then autostart the install process and refuse to abort, even if I pulled the plug. Also, it would have to quickly develop some sort of energy shield to withstand the shotgun blast I would be imposing on it within minutes.

It could happen..

All you really need is Home Premium.

Meh, why is it always a choice between two versions of windows. Unreal tournament came out for Linux as well, if more big publishers did that we could spend our time trying to get drivers to work and the thing to install propperly rather than complain about windows, best of all it wouldn't cost anything.

I would get a bloody mac, except they cost too much, and I don't give a damn in my computer looks pretty or not.
