I have heard the same arguments for years now going back to "Windows 3xx" when Microsoft introduced Windows 95 all the diehards said it was no good, the same with win98 and again with 98SE and then along came XP all the dinosaurs round here were about to commit suicide and then some years later we have "Vista" and they are all jumping in the river.
I have over the years run win3xx, win95, win98, win98SE, winXP, winXP SP2 and now Vista and I have never, ever had any problems with any of them.
Funny enough never hear things like this on a mac. Hmmm
and VISTA hahaha what a joke. Had it for a month, till it just imploded.
When I was playing games pretty much every day all day I was only using XP then I started doing more school work and found mac better then I went back to XP my god you really don't realise how shocking the OS really is.
What about windows ME haha that was like vistas sister
