Anyone here plan on upgrading their computer to the new Vista? A company my friend works for just upgraded all their business computers to Vista and it's incredible! All the new features, the simple layout, and the graphics. I do have a fear of upgrading my laptop, it seems that something ALWAYS goes wrong . It's only a couple years old so I don't have any excuse to buy a brand new one with Vista pre-installed.

But all in all, I can't wait for it to be released.

I B Ig-nor-ant.. Dunno what VISTA is..clue me in please ...

OK, I searched for Vista and got an overview. It sounds good, kind of like a "super" XP Windows where info. is more organized and just browsing over a file with the cursor opens a brief 'view' window. Searching is easier, it's just a souped up system it looks like. But, I'm in no rush and I also noticed that McAfee is concerned about the vulnerability of the system to attack and viruses....

Nope,
It would kill the my personal computer at home that is about 4 1/2 years old. I'm going to be getting a new computer next year that will be a lot better than that one so I'll go for Vista.

Default Vista

My laptop is only a year old so I will not be upgrading. It is my understanding that once Vista gets going all other operating systems will become obsolete. If the is true eventually we will all need to update. I think I'll wait and see how it is accepted and all the bugs are worked out.

Default No Rush for Vista

Well, I too will wait for all the bugs to be worked out. Besides, I like XP Professional; it satisfies all my computer needs.

I Believe you mean Windows 7... Vista is dead and burried

to many security issues had to be delt with on the Vista operating system.

Windows 7 is actually the predicessor to Vista, and is quite a robust/secure operating system.

I installed it on my computer last week.
Problem with it is that not many hardware manufacturers have updated their drivers to run under Windows 7. If you find this to be a problem, try running the problem hardware using the Vista drivers.

No, they mean Vista. You need to play attention to the dates on the posts. The first one was posted on December 18th 2006.
