"xp was updated 2k, me was updated 98."

Dude, I'd never thought nor heard it described that way, but that is pretty much perfect.

Really should put even more perspective on where Vista stands for the nut cases that insist Vista is ME, since Vista doesn't really fit anything to date from MS, as far as NextVersion goes.

i think ppl fail to realize that MS will not have another ME mistake. XP sales cease at the end of January 08 (from what ive read). at that time, it will either be get Vista for the updates and security, or stick with XP and no updates.

the truth is, MS can shove w/e they want down our throats and we have to take it. sucks, but it's the truth.

I think that is a smart move. Everyone should have the same O/S...or at least the same version. It would make a lot of technical things a lot easier.

Vista is more than capable for any user now anyway so I sya cease sales now.

yea, i had my doubts in the beginning, but all in all, it runs just fine. requires a few tweaks (ie the file transfer utility SUCKS) but drivers will continue to get better and the OS will come into its own.
