    sorry for smiling now ;) but we had 2 or 3 threads on here already collecting reasons why not to migrate to vista :p

    oh, by the way : www.badvista.org ;)

    I just got a new laptop and insisted on having XP installed ... I am very happy.

    for the average user vista is great, but when you want to do anything else it messes you around, its like its babying you and you cant do anyting about it.

    I've been using it for months, and I think it's a gigantic improvement. The problms are that it handles drivers differently, but it was time for a change. It's in the driver manufacturor's court now. Honestly, though..it's wonderful.

    edit: about the 'average user' thing...Vista has SO many more tiny options available to tweakers like myself, so it's far more flexible. It's better for average users, it's much better for power users.

    that is because you had no driver problems yet, and no problems yet with legally purchased downloadable content ... and because you did not read yet to what you agreed in the license agreement as far as I know.

    well, in terms of fancy appearance and gadgets maybe, but I cannot see a single thing which helps me to work better with my computers.

    I've had driver issues, and I still love it...

    As for 'legally downloaded content' I assume you're talking about DRM protected music. Your fault for paying good money on horrible quality, DRM infested files... Not something I would do.

    Actually, I myself am not downloading any music :p Usually the sound device is swithed off on my computers. Just know those issue from friends' computers.
