Yes, yes, yes! Some people here don't like to understand this.
Some exemplary support: my aunt uses windows 95. It does everything she could possibly want a computer to do. Why is "vista the future" for her? What reason could you possibly give her to get her to go out and upgrade to a brand new computer and a $260+ OS (I don't believe you can use an upgrade version on an OS as old as win 95).
Another example: my dad uses windows 2000 for his business. He uses Quattro Pro and Word Perfect, both 1993 programs or something. They do everything he asks of a computer. What could you possibly say to him to justify the purchase of a new computer and a new OS?
Me: I play games (well I did) and I do school work. How can you justify to me to get vista when XP runs all my games and software, faster than vista, if I might add?
Edit: I feel I need to note this again before the defend-o-maniacs get me: nowhere in my post did I say that I hate vista.
