Default Vista poll

Another sight has done a poll for almost a month now just though some might like to see the basic results

70% of those polled had no use for vista and were not going to use it
9% of those polled were undecided wanted to try then decide
21% of those polled had chosen one of the versions of vista

Personally I see no real positive change in this OS having used it though it is a nice way for redmond to keep users in the dark about what's really on their computer (allow or deny comment?) Apparently they know this in redmond and it's one reason why DX10 will not be compatible with XP, force them to use it is the battle cry it seems. (allow or deny comment?) ...................................... That pause was for those of you with the phishing filter to allow your hard drive to catch up. (allow or deny comment?) So it would seem from the poll, articles posted on the web and user forums that enthusiasts aren't so enthused about Vista. (allow or deny comment?)
BTW, I used to be a registered OEM system builder/partner with MS but opted out once I used this Linux/Mac fusion they claim to be progress

LOl, windows has been spammed and slammed in much more creative fashions than this and with much more class.

I use XP only, either pro (three machines in the house) and home (two machines in the house). My post came in the timely fashion it did so as to give more time for more votes in the poll. Think what you wish it matters not to me but you sure put me in my place oh my how will I go on with life?

I'm not sure, if you need someone to hold your hand I'm there for you. In your original post I think you mean "site" not "sight"; owned by homonyms.
