      I'll wait for it a year after it comes out, so Microsoft irons out all the bugs. By then I'll be due for a new computer.

        So you're saying XP has all the bugs out?

        Commercial OS suppliers don't fix bugs. They just roll out a new version (for a price) with new bugs.

          I'm running Vista (5384) daily...there are some real bugs, some unfinished things....but I can't say that Redmond isn't trying to do it right.

            I'll say it. Windows XP Pro has no bugs that I care about. The only reason I'll upgrade from this OS is if the features are worth it.

              XP still has bugs, but bugs I don't care about either. Its a smart move by Microsoft, because I've heard that Vista is not very backwards compatible. They need to eliminate those who are still running Win 98 & Me.

                  Less. I think Microsoft will do what they did with XP: slowly roll out vital "additions" (.Net, Direct X, anyone?), but since Vista is full of places where they offer an opportunity to buy a software/service, it would be very easy to say: sorry, DX10 (or something else....) is Vista only.

                    I Agree with that one.

                      I work with Firewire and MS has already closed off any fixes to that stack on XP, so I've switched to a 3rd party stack to get reliable operation.
