In Texas, we would say. "Some are slow to cotton."

But me, well, I'm in tall cotton now.

It does seem as though I've seen it somewhere before, it looks good though.

A certain user must have had a bet he could get me to change avitars. So just to split the pot and humor him.

This is how it'll go where I work too. Once the influential people start asking the switch is on. At least I feel like I will be ready thanks to Seven Forums and RTM

As the options are basically vista or seven now for these customers take up could be good
Do you think the down grade to XP option will still be offered on new systems?

As far as I know the agreement from Microsoft to the OEMs to offer downgrades on their Operating systems is only valid for One level downgrade IE from windows 7 to Vista or from Vista to XP.

I have not seen any downgrade offers mentioned by the OEMs but that is something that will only happen if Microsoft and the OEM partners feel that window seven has the same issues with customers as Vista did.

XP is also of course now out of full support and only security updates are being even considered
