Windows While the BBC features reviews of Vista by ordinary folk, someone dove into Vista's EULA [.pdf] only to find that when you upgrade from a previous version of Windows, the license of that product becomes invalid. What this means, basically, is that after you've upgraded your XP install to Vista, you cannot use the license of your old XP install on another computer. Tom's Hardware, in the meantime, published an in-depth benchmark comparing Windows XP to Vista, concluding that "Vista is the better Windows, because it behaves better, because it looks better and because it feels better. But it cannot perform better than Windows XP." APCMag, lastly, wonders what can be learnt from the Vista launch.

Couple of problems with how you calculate that (not talking about your actual numbers).

First, you bought XP prior to buying Vista, as Vista is a newer version of Windows, the value of your copy of XP has depreciated.

Then you have the convience of taking less money out of your pocket NOW (not just all time), which is a big factor for many people.
