Default I've heard something about vista

Is it true that Microsoft might pull the plug on Vista like they did to Millenium Edition? In ur opinion should they do it?

Got to remember....you DON'T have to use Vista. XP is still supported for another 5 years.

VISTA is a load of, well, its just pointless, all it does is make your computer better for playing games and other stuff. If i had the choice to get it for free, i wouldnt, i would much rather stick to what i know works best.

I wouldn't say it's pointless.

There are several security features in Windows Vista. For example, User Account Control (user authentication for administrative tasks) and Address Space Layout Randomizer (virtually eliminating remote attacks on 64-bit Vista).

Peformance features too...like Windows SuperFetch, which examines the times of the day you run programs, and ensures that your commonly used programs are cached into the RAM and given priority over background tasks. It gets rid of that sluggish performance which some Windows XP users commonly experience when returning to their PC to run a program, after it's been sitting 'idle' for a length of time.
