This argument is so old but I am going to chime in anyway.

Continue to use XP - There is really no reason to upgrade an existing system to Vista from XP unless you have some extra cash and feel like trying something new. If this is the case, I strongly suggest you try out Vista.

Buy a new copy of Vista - If you build a new system and have an extra $100 (YEAH I KNOW TONS OF GOLD), why would you install XP? People complaining about drivers and software not working are not updated. I have had one driver problem with Vista since I began using it. Every single application I used on XP worked on Vista with the exception of Nero 7 (which by the way, had nothing to do with Vista). Man up and buy Vista.


I was a die-hard Windows 95 fiend. I know what it's like to hang on to something for entirely too long!

In my case, I use an educational license (hence 32 bit). Any time someone says, "here's a free OS!" You better believe I am trying it. I was really skeptical about Vista at first but I love it now. Once you use it for a while and get to learn the little things, you begin to appreciate it more.
