Windows Just weeks after releasing Windows Vista Beta 1, Microsoft has shifted our paradigms again, unveiling a preview of beta 2 at the TechEd 2005 developer conference. Also, "hardware vendors are going to love the news that Windows Vista is going to need very beefy hardware to run well. At Microsoft's TechEd conference, Dan Warne finally managed to squeeze blood from a stone - or rather, answers about Longhorn's hardware requirements from Microsoft."

People here are saying why not stick with 2k/xp. I'll tell you why.

Support for those products will end and new software will not run. Like Doom 3 for example will not run on 98. It forces you to upgrade or miss out on many things.

Sure you'll be fine for about a year, but then?
