I'm in partial agreement with you here-- XP/someLinuxFlavor on my old machines, Vista/Ubuntu dual boot on the newest one-- but, having played with Windows 7, I think that those of us with Vista may see a "real" reason to upgrade. As has been widely reported, the beta version is pretty solid and performs well on older hardware /with/ the glitz features like Aero. Assuming this holds true for the release as well, I expect a fair percentage of those using Vista will indeed upgrade.

Not if he delivers on his promises within a reasonable window of time or can defer blame for his lack of delivery to a reticent congress. The very fact that we're talking about his prospects for re-election _10 days_ after he assumed office illustrates why it's so difficult for politicians to do anything meaningful. Yes, no one's life is magically better because Obama is now in power. This is in no way a surprise.
