Are You Going to Upgrade to Vista?

Bill Gates has shocked the entire industry by using some unusual vocabulary to describe his excitement for the Microsoft Vista Operating System, which comes out today. "This 'Wow' thing is a great way of describing what we've got here," Microsoft's chairman told The Associated Press on Monday as the software maker began a slate of splashy events in New York. "There are chances for wows all over the product."

Looks like Jimmy Kimmel, who hung out at the Windows Vista Lounge with Eva Longoria, Molly Sims and DJ AM last week, has already gotten a chance to take the system for a spin. Now available to the public, Vista retails for $100 to $400, depending on the version and whether the user is upgrading from Windows XP. As a mac user I'm not as thrilled as some for the new OS, but I am excited by the idea of running it on my mac and seeing what the fuss is all about. So, who is running out and buying Vista right away?

Yes- I have switched to Vista and my computer is now running more smoothly and faster at everything, As I am a It professional it only took me a day to get familar with its operating system. It does things a little differently and It's appearance more graceful and auto detects most hardware already on your computer. Upgrade and enjoy the new benefits and features....

Hahaha, no way. Vista will detect freeware (unless I've been told wrong) and I'm used to it. When programs no longer have versions for windows 2000, I'll switch to Linux like my friend.

I already have. I primarily just want it for the new look, since I don't really care about the other stuff. My friend gets them for free since he's an IT guy. It was in developement and beta far longer than other versions of Windows.

I'm going to follow the advice I've heard everywhere: I'll switch when I get a new laptop that comes with it, since it's a memory hog and I don't want the first version, which is bound to be buggy.

We know Windows and its history. I'll wait until the patches come through before I upgrade.

I'm holding out for as long as possible. I don't like messing with things like that. I want my laptop to last a while and then I'll get Vista on the new laptop.

It came with my new laptop, so I guess I will upload it when I get it. Had to send in the rebate...I'm not excited about it though, I like XP just fine.

I would if I could afford to, probably...although I haven't yet upgraded my iexplorer because NEW STUFF SCARES ME.
