It runs on my 1600+, but my graphics card is outdated so I don't have the fancy stuff.

uhhh...I have Vista. Its nothing all that fantastic. It looks a bit snazzier and all but for the most part its just a face lift. I mean the flie setup is a bit cleaner and the whole feel is just less harsh. The requirements aren't all that high but it does take more to run. I think it just need MS to be behind it 110% for it to sell and be a worthy OS. Like everyone said already...Updates, updates, updates.

No, I'm not. MS sucks, but XP is not that bad. Everybody seems to be using it. Don't you?

I'm perfectly fine with using Windows 2000, and would be fine with using XP if I did. Anything that Vista puts out will be something better than this. And there's still close to a year left until the final product comes out and if you think that whats in Vista right now is whats going to be in the final product, you're SADLY mistaken.
