my need for those apps has since changed so I have been thingking about giving Vista another go.
I waited for SP1 to be out before i installed and try Vista again, before that, i tried it with i think RC2, with my GX2..left horrible memories...

Infact from the first vista sp1 install i have not even gone back to XP yet...

so is WIn 7=Vista SP2 ?
in that case i wonīt need to buy win7 ?

unless it has DX11 and, nvidia and ati drops dx10 for 11 then it is a different matter. And vista and xp are bye bye for once dx11 comes, vista is useless if it donīt get it somehow

am i wrong?

Wow, that's marked up. In the states, it began at $400 which is about 2731SEK. Hopefully it comes down a bit.

all new features in W7, will first show up around time Vista SP2 gets released.

when W7 gets released it will have all those features plus updated look and core of vista.
