    That's what I thought when I first installed Vista. Surprisingly, almost all my hardware were recognised and did not require external drivers. Only a MSI bluetooth dongle which did not comply with microsoft's bluetooth stack was not recognised. Seems to me Microsoft has improved on its driver compatibility this time round.

    Still remember Win2K, lost count on the number of upgrading patches i did.
    Lets be realistic. Security patches will never end. Not say Windows is lousy but it is too big a target to miss. I'm sure holes are everywhere in the other OSes too if someone bother to look.

    In the security game, it is never ending with hacking, counter-hacking measures, counter counter-hacking methods.... the good guys just have to keep on improving.

    It is not only security but also the frequent “functionality” related fixes. Besides, the features offered IMPO hardly bring true value for the consumer. “Pretty pictures” offered by the new UI to me are more wants rather than needs. Parental Control will probably be hated by teenagers and feared by less tech savvy parents. Better gaming integration? I believe my PS3/Xbox360 will do a better job. What about the new “tag” and digital image editing features? Well, my Photoshop and other imaging software have been doing for quite some time. As for High Definition content playback, I think the Blueray and HD-DVD manufacturers will take some time to sort things out. Lastly, it gave me the “wow” when I saw the price tag. Therefore, when I ask myself whether will I be less productive staying on to XP rather than upgrading to Vista? Well, I’m seriously having difficulty trying to justify so at this point in time. Of course, having said all the above, further down the road, Microsoft will eventually “force” you to upgrade should you stay with Windows.

    Eventually may need to upgrade when MS stop supporting XP years later.
    But for now, really not much special functionality other than pretty screens.
    This OS may not be able to use the software we are happy with now.

    Why is there a need to buy MS office 2007 when I have not even learned full use of Office 2003.

    Then again, if MS gives a CNY cheap offer of $50 for Home premium Vista at launch period, maybe will buy. And keep just in case.

    The Home Basic version is so barebones.

    Actually Office 2007 is useful. I have used the 3months trial of it. It gives stuff like 3D graphs and other pretty things. haha. I like.

    But Vista, ahh, nah.

    I might consider the $248 - $40 offer at Funan for Home Edition 2007. Has 3 computer user licences.
    That's less than $70 per computer. Has Excel, Word, Powerpoint and I think either oneNote or Outlook.

    Certainly makes more sense to buy this than people throwing $$$ ($100 to $5,000) for garlands/sashes to nightclub singers.

    I tried Vista at the roadshow. Vista is a good improvement in the look. Good for the windows community but i still think OS X is king of interface , simplicity, classy and elegant design.

    For XP users, Vista will definitely bring joy and hours of fun

    a first class OS will run seamlessly with the most affortable hardware..

    not requiring you to run top of the range hardware and still lags...

    MS will support XP till 2010, so still can use up till then, after which it i think hackers will be busy with hacking Vista, so Xp should be quite safe, what u need is drivers for newer hardwares and software compability.

    well 2010, I'll be running all Mac.. No more MS until they decide to change their platform..
