Windows Tomorrow, Microsoft will release all 6 versions of Windows Vista; some of us will rush out to buy themselves a copy, some of us will, like, not do that. OSNews will be bombarded with Vista related articles until old CRT monitors will have faint imprints of the word 'Vista' scattered across their tubes. So, to start the whole barrage of Vista articles off, here is a promotional video of Windows 386, released in the late 80s. This video is nothing short of brilliant. I suggest you make yourself a nice, warm tea (or coffee, if it's morning) and sit back to enjoy the wonders of multitasking, the 'just like OS/2' interface, the 80s music, and, lest I forget, the fashion in spectacles. Update: I am currently watching the 1982 classic The Thing, and there's a character in there named 'Windows'. Coincidence? I think not!

How old is your hardware? Are you sure that Vista has drivers for all of your hardware items? Vista needs at least 1GB RAM, and would be happier with 2GB.

Upgrade to Vista is probably not a good idea (in fact, it is probably going to be a disaster) unless your hardware is very capable and less than a year old.

My hardware is very new. My games are very old ;)

Core 2 Duo E6600, 2GB Ram, GeForce 7900 GS, etc.

However, I play games that are as much as 10 years old, as well as ones that are only a few months old. Almost all of them work fine on XP. I have no reason to upgrade to Vista. I know that many of them are likely to not work.
