I run both, will eventually go completely Vista because it's the next Windows, it's good and will only get better, and DX10 gaming ftw.

I thought I heard some hearsay that their going to be coming out with another windows OS in about 2 years. I also heard some hearsay that some dude hacked DX10 onto XP. So, if you can get DX10 on XP I wouldn't spend extra for Vista.

I'll run XP for another two years probably. I definitely will not upgrade to Vista anytime soon simply because other programs and apps are optimized to run efficiently on XP, whereas that hasn't happened on Vista yet. Drivers are another issue...

If was buying a new OS, I would go ahead and buy Vista. IMO it would be more future proof.

But, thats just me....

I run both but cant stand the corks in vista so I'd wait awhile not just a couple months either before moving on up.
