    Seems like there is a few problems with it. I thought I would upgrade as soon as it came out. But now I will definitely wait. XP on my laptop is fine with me. Shoot, on my desktop I run ME!!! It does great.

    I have it on my new laptop.

    I think its alot different than XP.

    Honestly alot of things are different. It will take awhile to figure it all out.

    After years and years of PC usage (Windows years consisted of Windows 3.1, Win 95, Win 98, Win ME, Win 2k, Win XP), I switched to Macs about 2 years ago.

    I couldn't be happier, or more satisfied with my decision. I still have a Win machine running XP alone in a corner...but I can't remember the last time it was used...

    Macs cost too much money and are too limited as far as gaming. I like to build my computers and switch out parts etc...They are only 2.5% of market share.

    My GFs computer quit and she was forced to buy a new one. The only thing we could find locally was Vista computers.

    There were several problems with program compatibility and she was eventually forced to install XP on the new computer.
