If only, if only... But then OS X would be plagued with the same problems as windows. Apple would be crushed under the heel of MS; Apple would lose all of its hardware sales.

I think we're all missing a key point implied in this bit of news: This is great for consumers because it gives them another option.

Choices make everyone happy. The consumers are happy because options help control prices. MS is happy because, no matter what, they'll still get their money. Market minorities like Linux and Apple are also happy because they'll still attract their target demographic, as well as be presented with an interesting opportunity to win a few battles in the marketing wars ("Oh, look, MS can't do their new OS properly, so they're keeping the older one around for a little while longer!").

As long as there is variety in the market, I'm all for that.

Please. Just listen to yourself. You're arguing about an OS. Die in a fire.

I would be on Vista if it worked for me. I installed it and it was god awful slow. I know there must have been some hardware issue. I was going to get video card drivers, but it took like 15 minutes from the time I hit enter on the login screen until the desktop showed up. I know this can't have just been the fact that it's a bad OS, something else must have been amok...

Wow fanboism bad around here.

Drop back a few years when XP came out and you had all the same arguments against it as there are against Vista now. Many of the old XP problems have been addressed, give it a little time and the Vista issues will be fixed. It's always like this for the first year or so that MS releases a major new OS. Personally, I'm sticking with XP for a bit longer until I have upgraded my comp's hardware and there is better driver support.

I do not understand why people say that Vista is slow. I think it is faster than XP for me at least. Boost faster, loads programs faster, everything is just overall faster for me. The minor fps loss in some games does not bother me as it will be back up.

I'm actually not arguing at all.

This, unfortunately, is not the truth. At least not to people looking to buy new computers and new hardware. Since February every machine in any store has been vista-preloaded. And you have to remember, the vast majority of people only buy from these stores. To even get XP on a system, its got to be a dual-boot **** *** PWNZOR machine from some vastly overpriced company thats watercooling an E6300 clocked at 2.5GHz or some crazy dumb crap like that.
