I agree with topr8. I am wondering about Vista. What will the average Joe do if he has to shell out $200 for it and IE7 only runs on Vista but MS won't give any more updates for XP down the road. I'm thinking that a lot of soul searching may take place among those who don't really need a computer but what happens after that, I don't know. Of course, MS will change their marketing strategy but will this be a crack some competitor can work on?
