|I think that for many people running XP Sp2 happily on there old machines , running all they wanted , an upgrade was a mistake but for new hardware Vista has proved to be reliable and pretty .|
We cannot pretend that XP was as good at first , " It's a load of rubbish I'm going back to 98" , After Sp2 that all changed .
Am I upgrading to 7 ? , I have already ordered a copy , what hardware ? , I don't know yet because I'm happy with Vista , It ain't broke , not another Win-ME .
As for MS they have to say something to get people to buy 7 , cynical maybe but it is M$ we are talking about .
