Just think. That little bit of mass costs you hundreds... Almost like a diamond in proportion except in my opinion a diamond is more useful XD

How much is ulitmate again, because for under $400 it is worth it just for the box, that black and blue scheme goes so well with my computer.

Last I heard Ultimate was just shy of $600 before taxes @ release. I don't plan to get Vista until Q4 2008

I was thinking Vista at the end of 2007, or beginning of 2008, no sooner.

See how Vista has you all hooked?<br>
It's just a box ¬.¬<br>
Hell, i'll make you a nice shiny box saying "Torched Geek's Distro of Linux" if you will pay me $400 for a box and a cd containing nothing but Full Fat Windows Junk Food
