About 5 minutes as of my post...<br />
<br />
The interface is really cool, like a modified Linux, without the overly confusing aspects of Linux.

</div>Well overall, it really IS a good operating system. The only thing I have a problem with is how much it is going to cost to buy it. Otherwise it's great.<br />
<br />
And its a lot easier to like somthing that costs money when you actually have it. I'm not directing it towards you or anyone else for that matter, but for me I didn't like vista becuase it is more expensive than I would have regularly paid for an operating system but ever since I started making money I didn't think the price tag was so high.<br />
<br />
So I'm about to buy it when it comes out and I doubt I'll have any regrets.

lmao. Yes that is true but what can you expect?<br><br>
Every year somthing better will come out and <b>nothing</b> is free (not that you don't know that) and I don't ever expect the minimum system requirements of home operating systems to ever be lower than vista is (by microsoft anyway).<br><br>
I know that linux has the same type of effects that Vista has but Windows Vista will be the next step to getting windows as close to a Mac OS X operating system as they're going to get for a while.

lmao. Im just saying its not really doing anything different(or better for that matter) than xp but it takes up almost triple the resources. I just don't see whats so great about buggy bloated software.

That's right <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> When it comes out make sure you get retail upgrade to save some cash but bypass that mobo limit.

Loads of folks will run Vista on their machines when the final version is out. Some people will run it because it will come bundled with their new computer (Dell etc) others will get it because they are ignorant and will assume that newer will equal better and yet others will buy it so they can tell everybody else they have the latest software on their cutting edge hardware. Loads of people will be running it, even if they don't need to, or would be better off with a different OS. It's only people who know about these things and who can resist the temptation to get it to show off, that'll pass it buy...<br />
<br />
But yes, there is nothing great about running the beta on your system and doing so does not equate to "owning at life" <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> . Still, nice that you're happy with life pow3rtr1p. <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> Good for you <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> .<br />

I just like the fact that I can run any program I want (except AIM, no Vista compatability) and I didn't pay a dime for either OS.<br />
<br />
And my "owning at life" was sarcasm <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
