Dear Uncle Bill (Gates).......YYYYYYYYYYY?

My father just got Vista.
I got XP last November.
Now alot of noise about Windows 7.
So, based on your experiences when will they stop supporting XP and Vista with automatic updates?

I heard that XP was more popular than Vista and I saw a news story tonight that Windows 7 will correct the mistakes they made when they created Vista. I suggested my father go with XP but he refused.

Windows 7 Beta was released today for Dev so its really coming, help us all!!  You can buy Vista and get a license deal with the VAR to still install XP legally. See what happens, Vista is much like Windows ME was just better, if you can imagine that.

Vista has received a "bad rap". It is an excellent stable operating system, probably more so than XP. The only issues are drivers for existing attached hardware such as legacy scanners, and some software applications. We heard the same arguments with Windows 2000, XP, and even XP SP2.
XP will be supported for a long time. There is no need to change but Vista is an excellent choice if buying a new PC. Windows 7 was released today in a pre-beta format. It will be a long time before it is commercially available, and the differences between it an Vista are relatively minor. There were some major changes with Vista but that was primarily due to such a long time between releases of operating systems (5 years). Steve Balmer of Microsoft said, that will not happen again.
