    Lol. I only see a positive side. If it turns out good, then great, I'll get it some time. If it turns out bad then no probs, I will stick with my trusty Win7 which I love anyway. And at least the buyers of OS's seem to be more contemplative and less reactionary so if it is truly bad, I can rely on people to vote with their wallets and just pass it by, like what happened with Vista, the chocolate teapot of the OS world.

    I just wish gaming was more like that, but for whatever reason, buggy uninspired games sell by the boat load.

    Yep, you can buy Vista Business (retail) for as little as $NZ30 on auction websites, so why wouldn’t you? I have two machines running it: the kids' gaming machines (Spore GA/Minecraft, nothing too demanding) runs perfectly, if a little slow to boot. Picked up Vista Ultimate (64-bit) for $NZ90 for my own machine: the OS is fine, it's the Antec alleged silent case that lets the side down.
    I have a couple of machines running 7, and the only real difference I notice is boot time. And I have a couple of machines running XP. XP in conjunction with PowerDVD and remote selector are great for running an old projector, borrowed from the office, keeps the kids quiet during school holidays.
