Oh yea, and you get to play "mother may I?" with it frequently.

Aside from the 'mother may I' part, how is it functionally different than XP, what does it add that is 'just so great' that I am somehow depriving myself, aside from the fact I don't like "mother may I"?
If you love XP so much keep using it until 2014 or 2050 if you must, but don't expect everybody else to share your same love-affair. As strange as it may sound, there are still Windows 95 fanboys out there even today. However, the world must move on.

Did I do something wrong by turning off the Vista "mother may I?" Am I going to he.. for also turning off the silent security nagging icon on my tool-bar?

You know, I started with CP/M, then went through the 6 different DOS versions, then Windows 3.1 and so on to Vista. Every new OS system had its problems, but they can be overcome. When Windows 7 comes out, then I'll go with that OS too...but not right away. I like to change, otherwise computers would be boring...just like typewriters were.

I find it amazing that everyone chooses criticize, ridicule, and attempts to insult me for not embracing the bloatware known as Vista, yet after many requests not a single one of you has every enlightened me with something that I am missing out on by not buying the hype from M$ about this bloated OS.

Golly gee, could it be that Vista does nothing that XP doesn't?

So why aren't you running Windows 2000 or 98? The OS is just a platform for running your programs, right? There must be some reason you're running XP and not and older OS.

Not that I want to get involved in the Vista bashing, but I must ask... who cares what OS your using? Use what you want and be happy. Don't get upset with others because they don't like this OS or that OS (kind of like the chevy vs. ford people). Personally I wouldn't touch the bloat that is vista with a ten foot pole, but I don't think less of those that like it. I will skip it like I skipped Windows ME. And yes, I have quite a bit of experience with it, many of my home user customers use it, and I ran Vista x64 on my new game box for a couple days, but it couldn't compete with the speed of Server 2008 x64.
