Revision:

I am not too excited for this; it seems they're more worried about parental controls and cosmetics than real issues that need to be addressed for an operating system.

I hope the consumer (professional) version has more for the 'power' users...

Will they have any sort of listings of any of the apps that are compatible with Vista?

hello,
Considering I don't have Windows on my laptop, I am not going to replace it with Vista. I am a Linux only person. However I wonder if others will replace it. People like my grandmother or my own mother may replace it if the recommendations are high enough. As for a list of compatable programs for Vista, I am sure they will eventually have it. It just takes time that's all.

I will get vista and install it to my laptop as soon as it comes out (bad choice i know...lol)

I think I might get the ultimate version although i won't be using all the functions...Anyways my mum is letting me make the choice so idk yet, depends on which version is going to come out first.

my personal opinion is wait till microsoft comes out with the second version when all the bugs are fixed up. I would like to point out that MS isnt realy covering the problems in the OS but making the cover better. I still use win 3.x and 95 Plus for most of my projects, I mean i do have XP medial center for new stuff. Win 3.1 was probally the best OS MS ever made to date (excluding MS-DOS 4.0& 6.2) 95 is really good too (not the original though) i recomend not upgrading for a bit later.

My fav system is Win98 SE though it not supported anymore i got a new P4 PC system with XP SP2 and it has been great. I heard there were lots of bugs before Sp2 so i may wait until Vista SP2 before i buy it. I would love to buy it as soon as it comes out but 1) i'm still paying off my P4 system. 2) i just got a laptop 3) i'm poor now because paying off a PC and Laptop at the same time not a wise move but i needed the laptop .

Overall i'm afraid we have to move forward like everything else.

There never is a final version of Windows or Office. Because they bring out new versions. Well until they run out of ideas anyway.

Probably install it on my new pc next year since I am running a 32bit Pentium 4 right now.

I hope that they will do something about the compatabily for games though...

I am going to wait at least for the SP1 cause you know the second that thing is realeased hackers are going to be searching that source code for the smallest little vunerability and exploit it...

Damn hackers are almost more inteligent then bill gates if not more...

I won't be using it at home (Slack Forever!) but at the office we may upgrade after a service pack. I haven't had time to put the beta through its paces but on the new Dell it runs well. That said they always try to cram new "features" in the final release that break otherwise stable code.

Realistically speaking, when its finally released, aside from people with brand new computers, how many of the rest will have the pc with the grunt to run Vista very well?. :huh:

I've been running the beta for a while and beyond the kernel updates and the new driver handling I'm not impressed w/ the OS at all. Its still heading the 'WinME' direction, stripping stability and direct control for 'shiny' buttons and replacing primary security functionality w/ backend and 'simple' access control which will lead to more user targeted security vulnerabilities and backweb/rootkit based infections (take the UAP file action popup... create a spam of those and guarenteed after the 4th popup people will just mash 'allow' which could possibly admit any system alteration). Course I'm a huge fan of simplicity in computing (in the traditional sense).... I'm a folder/executable/file permissions/tiered user level fan... want to install/un-install/update a program, be logged in as a power-user, go to its folder on the drive and run its (un)installer (no registry entries, nothing added to any critical system file/folder just files w/ version info in a header and self contained sub folders and dependancies) heck should just be able to delete the program folder and any shortcuts. Want to make a major system change or alter the OS in a way other than look&feel, must completely log out then back in as the ONLY system adminstrator.
