January poll
« on: January 02, 2007, 05:17:31 PM »
For the month of January and the New Year we thought it would be interesting to see how many users are planning on upgrading to the next Windows operating system, Microsoft Windows Vista.

Feel free to post any comments of why youíre upgrading and/or why you donít plan to upgrade.

All past monthly polls and results can be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

          I voted ...yes ..... but to qualify that , I am planning on purchasing a new pc sometime in the comming year , to take advantage of the newest technology .
          I would have Vista on that machine ...given its reasonably bug free by then .
          I will continue to use XP on my other machines.

          I have the express upgrade, all I have to pay is for shipping, so I'll pay for that, and just keep the CD for if I ever need to upgrade, but I'd prefer not to.

            I think I will, for several reasons.

            The first reason is that it's always good to have a full OS disc for when Windows fails. I have one, but having more to fall back on never hurt anyone.

            The big one, though, is that I want to assemble a cheap machine, and use it as a first line of defense: When I want to download something I'm not sure about, I'll put it on the cheap box If it doesn't crash it, I put it on my computer. To do that, though, I'd need another OS Disc. I'm not sure, but I think we've been upgrading since Windows 3.1. At least, our only Win95 disc is an Upgrade. :-/

            I voted No, staying with XP, but I would like to have seen some time period stated in the question.  I'm sure I'll eventually upgrade, but I have no plans to do it in the near term, probably not during 2007.

              [size=14]It costs money to upgrade, right?  Slap-dab out of that stuff.  Besides, I don't trust Mikey to sell me something stable.  I'm not yet brave enough to go *nix, so I'm stuck in the middle again.[/size]

              I meet the system requirements but I'd feel more comfortable with 2Gb of RAM.
              I'll stick with XP in classic mode thanks, Vista is not on the horizon for me any time soon, if at all.

                Will have to upgrade sooner or later.  Hazard of the job.
