I stay with XP...because I feel it does everything that I would expect of an O/S and I'm very comfortable with it.
I've never seen anything by anyone...that will convince me that Vista Anything is a better O/S for the casual user that I am.
I don't know...some persons buy a new car every year or two years, even when the incumbent still functions effectively and efficiently. Some persons buy a new computer because they think of it as a toy and they just get tired of their toys every few months.
I don't intend to switch my O/S just because...someone else tells me that I need to do so because...well, just because .

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Your on thin ice with hot feet hamluis.....! Don't push it
No O/S is going to be idiot-proof unless you somehow make it so that the idiots cannot operate it .

sounds like my cps120 teacher.
I got XP Home and Pro, Vista, Ubuntu and Lord knows how many different Live versions. If I look hard enough, I'll find a stray 95/98 machine and somewhere there's an old Thinkpad with W2k on it

I am straying away from Vista because:
1- I don't have the required 8 GB of ram to run it (joke)
2- Even though you can turn them off, the security popups are annoying as hell.
3- EVERYTHING is compatible with xp
4- a Dual boot of XP and Ubuntu far outweighs Vista ANY DAY
5- I'm not willing to come up with a couple hundred dollars to buy "the next best thing" when clearly most people I know would rather run straight old school DOS than it.
