I must say, if installing a proper printer driver on Ubuntu is easier than installing the same printer driver on XP and especially Vista (because the printer in question does not have Vista drivers), than I think something's very clear regarding the future.

that matters little on the OS , but how much one is experienced in using the os

After running Vista on one of my systems for a few weeks, I decided to migrate back to XP. Sure the eye candy was there, but I saw a small decrease in performance that I found unacceptable. Why overclock the hell out of your system, then give some of it back simply for looks? MINE!

Another compelling reason for me to skip Vista is price. Two workstations, a server and a laptop = 4 licenses x $185 per license = $740 + tax. Effectively $800 for eye candy, but with decreased performance and an unfamiliar interface. Some you you youngsters may not mind, but those of us who have been systematically robbed by MS buying 3.1, WFW, 95, 98, 98SE, NT4, ME, WIN2K, and XP, it gets old and I'm NOT going to simply drop another thousand bucks for a bunch of hype or DX10.

Iv got a copy of Vista Ultimate 64 here but am probs never going 2 install it. I dont see any need what-so-ever to. The only reason would be for DX10 and lets face it that runs like a dog so why bother?

I've gone back to XP SP3 myself. I had Vista x64 installed but then one day I turned off my computer...30 minutes later I turned it back on and all of the sudden the OS seemingly disappeared. Couldnt repair it, couldn't do aything. The OS just went away somehow.

That was the last straw. Vista is nothing but a headache in the long run from my experience.

I'm not saying vista is good or bad on this comment, but this is exactly why "intel is skipping vista." Vista is an unknown quantity. It's great that you overclockers "haven't had any problems." But why should a business that manages billions of dollars in products and money go with an unknown quantity over something tried and true?

Just like how internet-cafe's in my area use ATi instead of nVidia. Why? Because down the line they can CrossFire a 38xx series with a 48xx if they need more juice to keep up with current and future games, nVidia cannot do that with their line of cards. ATi for the masses, nVidia for the select few. ATi wins.
Wrong. You can't Crossfire a 38xx with an 48xx. Where did you read that? I read here on OCN you can't.

Exactly why we're still running XP at work. In my workplace my department alone currently has more than $12 Billion (yes billion with a B) in assets under management, and we can't afford ANY downtime due to odd OS issues.

Okay my turn.
For my girlfriend/mother/coders of Vista, Vista is awful.
Yeah...

Computer tech is exponential. Looking at the CPU requirements, they doubled in the 1.5 years between 2000 and XP. They quadrupled in the 5 years between XP and vista. Sounds about right to me.
Actually it is a great argument, businesses cannot afford to buy both new hardware and software licenses. The fact that is a huge step forward is not in question. It's whether (especially with America's economy right now) business can afford Vista and it's outrageous requirements.

Hehe, I like how the Linux users are the ones not being fanboys right now.

My offer still stands for marriage.

This happened to my installation of Vista 32 bit as well.
