    My plan is to try to avoid vista like the plague.

    Vista might be the reason for me to migrate to a different OS when XP is not supported anymore. I do not want to rely on one company to be in control of all the drivers.

    Also, when I upgrade my computer, I want to feel it in the performance of the applications, not in the performance of stupid gadgets of the OS.

    [edit:] sorry for the rant, and not commenting the image, but what you show here is just very "political" ;)

    Alex, it is even worse. The end user license agreement gives microsoft the right to delete things from your hard drive without your consent or knowledge. The software police have actually arrived. Vista has gone completely over the edge. When XP is no longer supported I'm going to switch to Unix. It seems to have made a hit in Hong Kong, however. Nice shots.

    Blimey! Didn't know that. But there was something about Vista which the Euroland-administration seriously critizised I seem to remember, and I think that had to be changed then in the European version ...
    ... but maybe I was just dreaming that! :p

    Hmm, I am pretty used to UNIX/Linux at my workingplace ... however I would miss Photoshop.

    Photoshop is available for the Mac, so you can put one of those next to your Linux machine. Might not be a bad combination.

    I love that mac commercial where the pc nerd that looks like gates is standing and he has a secret service like guy behind him and everytime the mac guy talks the secret service guy asks if he should deny or allow conversation lol. Those commercials are genius.

    Nice pics :thumbup:

    The pictures are good. I am glad I don't have to stand in any of those lines. Don't know much about operating systems, am an XP user and was wondering...Why do we need another one? What is wrong with the old one???how much?????????? NO way. There is a young person in the second photo with a red photo phone that looks like they were taking your photo...
