Probably no upgrade until I get another machine (the current ones don't meet specs). Besides, I've reached my level of incompetence with XP. (see The Peter Principal)  ;D

        Well, my computer is only 500MHz so I don't meet the requirements. But even if I did, I wouldn't upgrade because:

        A. I'm perfectly happy with Windows XP
        B. Vista is too *#$&*&@# expensive!!!

        If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
        And I agree, Vista is expen$ive.

        Too expensive, I'm staying with XP.
        And why are we replacing the U in Unix with an asterisk * ?

        Vista looks cool, but I must admit, I am disappointed with how there are like, 5 different versions of one operating system. Why cant it all be included in one OS on one disk?

        I've also heard that all 8 versions, or maybe only 7 (?) (excluding Vista Basic?) will be included on one disk.
        The thing you will pay for will be the key to unlock the versions.
        However, the problem is then that if the key is cracked, all of the flavours are available.
        Maybe just a rumour?

        *nix represents all versions of Unix.
        Right?
        Or wrong?

          You have to unlock Vista versions? I smell a warez video game.
