Microsoft urges businesses to move from XP to Vista: http://www.newsfactor.com/story.xhtml?story_id=64662
Is anyone surprised that a company would urge you to buy their newest product?
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Hopefully someone will make all of the XP updates available somewhere on the web for the legions of holdouts that will never trust Vista or Win-7.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Does anyone have any justifications for such a viewpoint that don't involve snorting coke, alien conspiracy theories, or second gunmen? Because lets face it--even if there was a reason to "holdout," the vast majority of the group would presumably migrate over to Linux or OS:X.
Sure, Vista had some problems at launch, but if you read the emails Microsoft was forced to release during the Vista Capable lawsuit, it's apparent that a lot of the flak that got kicked up around Vista was actually the result of bad NVIDIA drivers--NV drivers account for 22 percent of *all* the Vista crashes reported in the months after launch.
Vista, to be sure, had other problems--I've got my own solid handful of things I don't like about its GUI and organizational structure even after two years of using it. But "never trust it?"
I mistakedly upgraded from Xp to Vista Ultimate.
And don't try to say I don't know what i'm doing, because I very much so know what i'm doing. Vista just sucks.

Well, then, you won't mind providing specific information on what you think sucks. :P Not that I think it's particularly hard to come up with a list, but if you're going to make a claim, you need to back it up. :P
People that are all, I hate Vista and win 7 grow up! XP is such an old OS. If you dont want windows then go spend $1200 for a mac or run a Linux build on your computer....

ok XP SP2 is EOLed but not XP SP3 correct? or did I miss something.
businesses will run whatever the hardware will allow to run. ie. if they have old P4's with 512MB of RAM those can't run Win 7 effectively which is why they still have XP. some businesses have a R.U.D. life cycle [Run Until Dead] others have a 3 or 5 year one.
