PeterK, I do like Vista. I have commented many times that when XP came out no one seemed to like it. It was so much different that Windows 98 and there were many driver compatibility problems (sound familiar?) Well, I listened to the negativity, I removed the HD in my new computer when it arrived, and installed a new one and installed Windows 2000. About 6 months later, I reformated that drive to use for data storage and put the original XP drive back in (I'm still using it).So this time, I ignored the negativity. Are there driver issues with Vista? Yes. Are there still driver issues ocassionally with XP? yes. Does Visa require greater resources? Yes. Is Vista the future? YesAre there machines out there that cannot be upgraded to Vista? Yes (I have one).Are there machines out there that cannot be upgraded to XP (fm 98 )? Yes (I have one of those also).Now if you have older printers (especially All in Ones) and older scanners and some other devices that won't work with Vista, you should stay with Vista for a while.There have been people who hate Visa, there were some people that hated XP. But when our antequated PC finally dies, we either have to embrace the future or do without.
