You need help! ME? Even Microsoft hid in the corner on that one.
Like i say everyone had their own preference. Although when i had ME it was just for basic browsing. There was no technical stuff going on with that computer.

I agree with you; maybe we are in a transition period and old ppl would find hard to adapt to new ways... But explain to me, why in H*ll they moved: Windows Key+U+U!?!?! No reason!

I will agree that Vista has needless stuff but for some it is useful. I am not sure if those things can be removed.

If you take the time to go through Vista and set it up you'll find it runs exceptionally well. Going through and uninstalling what you don't plan to use plus editing the reg will have a significant impact on how well it operates. BlackViper has been a guru of sorts for years and has just recently come back from a vacation of sorts to reopen his site. Lots of real useful info.

Don't do it if you don't have to. Wait as long as possible.

Real issues with wireless connectivity.

I've never had any wireless problems or program problems with Vista. And it runs faster than XP. I've got tons of programs on here too. Getting ready to get a new box for work and it will have Vista as well.

<rant>It runs faster than XP? Who are you trying to kid with that statement?

And if Vista is so good, why is Microsoft dropping the price on it? Because 99% of sales have been with the PC resellers. Microsoft can't sell it to the general public. They don't want it.</rant>

I love vista and it is very fast on my laptop...granted I do not have a bunch of programs installed other the the default ones and, photoshop cs, firefox, putty, miofactory, norton anti-virus, and a scientific calculator that I have not used since my general chemistry days...

If you are looking for a reason to upgrade then you will find that there are not all that many reasons to do so, I would take Boofo's avice on this issue. Or you could listen to nex and get a mac...I bet vista would not slow a mac down...

Runs fine on my laptop too. Basic version and it's loaded for bear. HP dv6205us
It's just a matter of wanting to learn the in's and out's of a new os. Trim off the fat and it runs fine. Only problems I really have are from the loose nut between the chair and the keyboard. (For those of you that don't catch that joke, it means self inflected issues coming from blatant acts of ignorance.)
As for the price, yeah it's a little steep. I gave $230.00US for home premium at the soon to be defunct CompUSA.

Make the move to Vista! I was concerned at first when I ordered my new PC towards the end of last year. However, I'm glad chose vista instead of XP. To me Vista is more polished and professional than the blue/green look of XP. I also love the sidebar with the hundreds of gadgets you can put in it.

My PC Specs
2.40 Ghz Intel Quad Core
2 Gigs Ram

A lot of people who have problems with Vista are running the minimum requirements that Microsoft suggests. There PC just can't handle the OS.

I remember all the people who downgraded to Windows 98. Vista is hands down better than XP.
