I just got XP working....Now I have to start all over again?
Nah--just stick with XP. It'll probably be good for five years or so. By that time, Microsoft will probably have been sued out of business.
I'm still waiting for someone to provide me with a valid reason for moving to Vista, especially given the price.
If I'm not mistaken, Vista won't be unleashed on the populace before the middle of January. After Christmas, notebooks and desktops should be dirt cheap. I'd stick with XP and buy now. Two of my former coworkers were beta-testing it and one loved it, but he had 4 gigs of RAM to power it. The other one hated it. The demo I saw didn't enthrall me. It seemed to me that it was much ado about nothing...
