And Why you plan to upgrade to Vista?

or will you just buy a new computer with Vista already on it?
I may do both.

I am wondering some of the main benefits that will motivate people to buy this new product and put it on existing PC's.
Will it be any faster to bring up programs, boot, improve the speed of the broadband connection?
Will it be easier to customize Vista?

Are their any downsides to upgrading to Vista besides cost and time?

Not me.

I reluctantly started using Windows 95, then 98 (which I actually liked) and then was forced to XP.

They all run slower than their predecessors, require more hardware, and are a pain in the posterior to a developer who likes to be in control (but still leave Linux standing).

No doubt one day I shall be forced to upgrade, and then spend months having to rewrite my software to work with the new system <g>

Well - I've got Vista sitting here ready to go, but I don't want to be too quick to crash my machine... Has anyone already got it on in a commercial environment? Is it stable?

I live in a 3rd world country where a VERY high percentage of the Windows XP installations are "non-registered" versions.

I'll have to wait until they start offering Vista on new machines.

I spoke to one local computer seller here recently and asked if they would switch to verified copies of Vista and he just grinned at me.

Will have to wait & see :-)
