Same here, man. Although saying the features aren't worth it could apply to some but not others. For you and I, apparently, I would say that the additional features don't warrant an upgrade. But also, like you, if I didn't have an OS, I would get vista to begin with. And I don't need features or anything since all I do is game - no internet, no school work - just gaming. My windows computers don't run any other programs.
