Before you have an outbreak of Hyattian flu, isn't Windoze7 going to fix the Alpha-test program MS-Vista?

Why fix Vista? Many silly people just buy new windows. Microsft make more money that way. :roll: :roll: I stick with Xp Pro 64 bit until I am forced to go! :!:

I'm with you Alex. It seems that MS just offered me a chance to upgrade my XP system with Window 7. I thought they must be kidding, why trade in a good system for one that sucks.

Totaly agreed here and I stick to the same operation system....
Vista is full of bugs and causes more headache than stability....

Wasn't my .sig, was just a direct quote from Linux at a Comdex meeting or something similar, I think when windows 2000 was "rolled out" and crashed more than once while Bill Gates was giving a demo. :)
