Windows If you are sticking with XP - and plenty of us are - and you're planning to miss the upgrade to Vista read this article on the Australian PC World. It looks at big questions like: will Windows XP still be properly supported by Microsoft and, as a primary development target, by third parties? Is there something we've missed, some hidden gotcha that's going to trip us up?

At this point Vista HAS to be adopted. How? Interesting dilemma for Microsoft.


I think it is not a dilemma. Look at the Past.

1995: I hated W95, I did avoid it. I ended using and liking it.

1998: I hated W98, I did avoid it. I ended using and liking it.

2000: I hated W2k, I did avoid it. I ended using and liking it.

XP/Vista: I personally still canĀ“t get friendly with it. Maybe in 6-24 months. Office: all desktops in my group are equipped with XP for 3-4 years now.

Anecdotal evidence! Yay!

On the other hand, I don't agree with any of those things you've said. Does that mean I'm right?
