exactly, at my high school you can obviously see where the WoW table is at lunch . seriously people only hate vista b/c they come out of their comfortable shell of Xp for a few minutes and then hate vista instantly when they can't do something, that they found a common thing on Xp. vista just doesn't get any love, i mean i know it's a bloated data sucking O/S, but really it's the users experience with vista that makes people hate it. for example, people who are intel fanboys say "AMD sucks", "you can't overclock as high with an AMD chip as you can with intel", "etc,etc,etc." when they haven't even tried AMD chips at all. it's just people's own stupidity that causes this, people complain about the high percentage of Xbox 360 RROD's, when people are idiots and put their 360 in a closed shelf, and there is no air intake from outside the case, so it heats up really fast, and eventually crashes. the media hasn't helped vista either, they always say "vista horrible, don't buy it, stay with Xp, blah, blah, blah, blah." besides who asked those no lives (wow players) what their opinion on vista is?! it's not like anyone really cares about WoW (except for blizzard).

they are bunch of n00bs who can't turn off user account control which makes vista annoying when it is on.

Vista ftw!
It might not be worth it at $400, but the OEM copies and education discounts, etc make is much more affordable.
It's just so much better than XP imho.

Everything I liked about XP over Vista, Vista now does better. XP doesn't hold a candle to Vista any longer. People it's time to move on, unless of course you have a hard time even running XP, then I suggest a tree and some thick rope.

Great but you're not giving us a REASON to switch. All you're saying is people don't like it when they switch. Why should we waste our money? We all don't have parents with huge wallets and we don't all just pirate our OS. Going from Windows 98 to XP WAS worth my money. XP to Vista is not.

I got my Vista from the Windows Feedback Program. Installed it, It looked cool and everything, and I like the new features. But the only thing that I don't like is, that the performance in games is less than half of what I got in XP

As soon as Vista works as well as XP in games, I will completely switch over to Vista, and not even bother with XP anymore.

Also, when they have more driver support, and more XP stuff works on Vista well, I will switch.

But until then, I'm sticking to XP

Honestly, until SP1 for vista was released, i hated it too.

To many incompatibility problems, and various devices not working with correct drivers installed.

Pulling SP1 back was, in my opinion, i big mistake, it needs to be standard on all Vista installs.

i wasn't meaning you personally, so you don't have to be nasty about it and snap back. basically Xp and Vista are the same, except for a few + or - features that are highly useful. don't get me wrong i love Xp too, but i love vista a little more. besides you can wait till 2010-2011+ for windows 7. so ease up.
