I still won't buy a Microsoft product. XP sucks there is no getting around that just because it is better than Vista doesn't make it a good os nor give me the desire to run it in VM. Lately I have been helping friends fix there XP/Vista boxes and it is a horrible experience for me, long hrs of watching progress bars inch there way across the screen. Wasting my time in the evenings after work that I'd rather spend with my kids. Has anyone ever thought to calculate how much time MS has taken from people with to progress bar or registry and they make you pay for the privilege. And an OS shouldn't have different versions Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions. And can you ever be truly happy if you got Professional when you could get Ultimate?
