    a disease ... but with several cures. ... MAC .. Linux .. and I doubted I would ever say this, XP SP2 ;) The latter is cheap, sort of stable by now, works with all my hardware, all my software ...what else could i wish?

    :meh: Definitely *nix. Any *nix.

    My preferred *nix is Slackware Linux.

    I believe new Macs run a *nix, too, though I could be mistaken.

    I just find Vista slow. I have it on my new laptop and have it on the kids PC here at home and I do like the look of Vista, but on the same hardware as Xp SP2 it is just plain slow.

    "They're here already! You're next! You're next!" :lol:


    Yep... now no-one will sell you a computer with XP on it. Considerate lot always offering us a choice, aren't they?

    I'm with Alex, will be sticking with XP for now. I'll switch to Vista when I know it's stable (say in about 5 years?) and when I know how many ways it can be exploited (by Microsoft as much as anyone else ;)).

    I was skidish when i seen vista on the new laptop, but i couldn't afford a new mac like i wanted to i had no choice. But its not to shabby runs good on the laptop, only thing I don't like I read somewhere that vista was suppose to recognize raw files from Nikon and Canon well mine don't and i don't like every time i try to run a new program it always ask for permission kinda of aggravating.
    and im not allowed to vote so the poll says but i can say i love it. I really want a mac.

    Vista is great if you don't have 10000 bucks worth of very selective photo programs that can't work with vista.
    In short, from my experience I HATE vista.
