In my opinion Mac OS X is the most elegant OS ever made. I guess you were running on old apple hardware.

Are you kidding??
I used home 1a, no service packs, no updates for 2 years on my old system using a free anti-virus and anti-spyware from AVG.

Never had a problem with viruses or pop-ups, etc.

Now you tell me it won't be safe.

If you are running xp pro Sp2 with all the updates up to that point.
You will be fine for years.

This can't be good for me. My college that I attend only supports Windows XP as of right now and they had major trouble trying to put my 64 Bit XP into the main frame of computers....ummmm, hard time with 64 bit(XP, they said they supported Windows XP) and still no support for Vista. I have asked many times if they will be have full support for Windows Vista and they said it wont be for another two years or more. Why is this Vista support such a big push when a college like mine wont even support it? My answer to my own question is that small private schools have a hard time keeping up with the technology move, I guess, other than that I don't know.

My main gripe with Vista is that MS can't decide if they are a software company or an ice cream parlor with their "31 flavors" of Vista. People let them get away with it in the days of XP because they only had Home and Pro at first, then added the 64 bit version later. I'm willing to believe that people are confused over all the options and such, hell even I don't know all the differences between all the versions without bringing up a cheat sheet. If MS wants to do it this way they should have just saved the effort and gone "a la carte" through their online store, let us choose the options we want, and skip the BS.

Anyway, I bought Ultimate and I actually use it sometimes. I prefer XP because it's faster and I know my way around it better, but I know I'll end up using Vista exclusively eventually. I didn't give up on 2k until 2005 and I will probably keep XP around until 2010 or so.

I think it'll be lights out for XP once the government and many other giant companies make the switch to Vista.
