    I have finally decided to take the plunge. Last night I upgraded my Vista desktop machine to Windows XP, and this afternoon I will be doing the same to my laptop.


    Read the rest here!

    You can run (most?) Windows programs on Linux, by installing a program called Wine (which stands for "Wine is not an emulator"). It is open source, and released under the GPL. Obviously I don't know what your requirements are, but you can give it a try.

    I used vista for a few months and I have nothing against it is becoming a good stron os however it takes up too many resources. I think I will wait till SP1 or SP2 come out before switching.

    Vista's on my spare PC in my office, and I've got no major complaints. The only reason I didn't install Vista on my main computer when I recently wiped is because it's not as fast as XP for gaming. I'm pretty sure that I will use Vista eventually... probably another year or two.
