I'll wait until the first 5 years of trouble shooting take place.

In the meantime I'll keep using XP Pro until some bastard developer
makes me switch to Vista.

Interested to see if anyone got the Beta though.

Since i only have a single core P4 3.0 gigahertz i am keeping my XP Pro SP2.
Win 7 or Vista are resource hogs and need a faster machine to be enjoyable.

My DX9 games all run fine, so i have no reasons to upgrade yet.

Not a chance!

I just got Vista 64 running fine after I have replaced nearly every piece of incompatible hardware I own (printer, scanner, camera, phone, etc....)

Wait.....

Yeah what, exactly is the justification for a new version of Windows?

Just as Vista becomes moderately stable they roll out a Beta for a
brand new OS that they will develop technology and applications for
that will cause people to want or need to buy it.

Shouldn't they be more worried with making a rock solid OS that
people can use for their computers instead of making a rock solid
business model that they can market consumers with?

I haven't installed it but a friend her at work (networking/sys admin guy) has installed it and read up on it. Apparently Vista = Millennium and 7 = XP. According to some tests it actually runs faster than XP. I'll look in to it at some point, XP works for me, and eventually I'll just skip over Vista to something more stable.

I read a lengthy article about the developement of Windows 7.

Basically it read that the dev team talked to IT pros, gamer geeks, some hackers, and joe.

The concensus was that the system should be able to manage resources like Vista but without all the OSX immitations. That it should be user controlled akin to XP.
