Well, reason #8 has to be because otherwise anti-trust laws would require the U.S. government to break up Apple into multiple smaller companies ... or is that the reason to buy a Zune?

I've got my personal list:

10. You want to know how many features have been ripped off from OS X.

9. You want to know how many extra hardware does it take to Vista to perform the same tasks as xp.

8. You want to play Halo 2, though you already bought it for the Xbox.

7. You hate PCs so much you want all them suffer with this bloatware.

6. You are the only person in the world who has a Zune because you like it.

5. You would feel warm and cozy in the flock of Windows users, leading you buy the Microsoft Migration Kit.

4. You have to, you were one of the contributors of the creation of that monster.

3. You have to, you're going to find as many security holes as possibly.

2.

1. You were molested by a Mac as a child.

Number 10 is a given. OS's copy from each other all the time.

Alot of things that get presented in New OS's have been done in an Reaserch setting first.

Ass for Halo2 on pc. forget it. A old XBOX and a copy of it would cost far less than vista, and probably still be a better gaming experience.
And also Halo3 should be out for the 360 soonish [Smile]

For any windows usage im going to be staying with XP until things will no longer work.

Help me please! I admit it - I'm curious about this new Vista thing. I think some of my friends have tried it and they all look OK. And it's not like it's actually wrong

Is it?

I've been reading about it, and I've even downloaded new drivers and utilities for my laptop. I should probably back up though, or will I be fine?

SAVE ME!!

I'd wait - give it an SP or three.

Seriously.

15. OS/X sounds too much like "Oh, yeah! Sex!", and Vista makes you think of happy landscapes filled with flying unicorns and rainbows.

Opinion is not Truth; that is why each has its own definition. Illiteracy sucks.
