    Because I created the poll mainly for Vista and XP users. To see how many people had made the switch, or how many had either stayed with Vista or gone back with XP

      I wish they could change their vote, since in about 6 months to 1 year from now they've all probably switched back, minus a handful.

          I have Vista running on my laptop and really I'm not impressed with it, chances are I'll reformat and installed XP on it. I do run XP on my desktop though.

              Thats what I did, had to try it like the rest. But after a week I hated it and went back to XP Media Center. I didn't hate Vista as such (far from it). I just hated how long winded everything is in it.

                Its funny... back in 2003, everyone was saying that they would stick with 98/2000 because XP didn't provide anything for them. Now the same people are saying the same things about Vista. Really people are just afraid of change here.

                  Or they just like to have something to argue about.

                    XP Pro and Vista Ultimate.
                    I originally started using Vista when it was in beta stage, and although it had it's issues back then, I've experienced very few with the final version.

                      Upgraded my computer from XP Home to XP Pro and more recently Vista Ultimate. Not had to change anything or add new hardware and it runs better than it did on XP.

                        They were right, SP2 fixed a lot, a lot of issues.
                        I have stayed with 2000 for a long time. I did not upgrade to XP since SP1.
                        But I was glad to upgrade away from 98 to 2000 when I had my web design company.

                          I use Vista, and I enjoy it very much. It runs very quick (may be the 4g of ram) and it looks much better than XP.

                            I use vista on both my laptop and pc and really like it. It took some getting used to but I had less problems getting used to it than I am having getting used to stupid Office 2007.

                                I have a copy of Vista, but I have never installed it. Vista's media center does not support my eVGA NVTV dual tuner card (it is possible to get one tuner working with XP drivers, but that is not good enough), so I cannot upgrade my desktop for now. My laptop can be upgraded to Vista, but I do not have enough disk space on my desktop to hold the backup due to media center, so it is not being upgraded.

                                While Vista is a nice OS, with eye candy galore, I really do not see the point of it and the longer it is out, the more that my original belief that it is an unfinished beta operating system is validated by all of the complaints people make about it. My original belief stemmed from all of the complaints by beta testers that Microsoft was marking almost all of their bug reports as "cannot reproduce" with little to no communications in the 2 to 3 months before its codebase was frozen. The patches Microsoft made after releasing it seem to have helped, but from all of the complaints gamers are making, they are not enough.

                                For average everyday usage, Vista seems to be stable enough, but even though I own a copy, I am probably going to skip Vista and upgrade to Blackcomb/Windows 7/Windows Subseven/<insert whatever Microsoft is calling it now> when it is released, assuming that they do not start from scratch mid-way into development like they did with Vista and then claim they spent the x years needed to make such an operating system when they really spent x/2 years.
