The biggest problem with xp is the lack of 64 bit support, which is what will be its eventual downfall. No one really came out and supported xp 64, so we have no drivers. Personally I think its time for me to move over to linux, as it does have 64 bit support, and more and more games seem to be coming out with support for linux.

MS leaked prices to see a reaction, to get people talking about it, and with that its too rich my wallet.

I don't really give a rats *** how much money they give on charitys, I'd rather pay less. I could rant much much longer, but I'll stop.

Well said, unless Windows Vista is tax deductible

actually, that aint a bad idea. get one for a computer at work somewhere, and write it off as business expenses, but tax it, not boss it, might be able to do it, but dont install it on that, install it on ur pc

I'll probably wait a few months after it's released so bugs will be sorted and then buy Home Premium at a , hopefully, lower price.
