Windows 7: What shall we do with Vista?

Why should we do anything with Vista but use it, I see no reason to abandon it, it works very well for me and not everyone will be able to get Windows 7 when it comes out.

I shall keep my dual boot. Not only do I like Vista but, as I've already found out, it's handy having two oss to boot into.
If you foul up in one you can find a fix with the other.

I'll probably keep it around. I've rarely had problems with Vista but I'm still buying 7 the day it hits shelves.

Toss the discs, use the cool plastic cases for important stuff. I have Vista RC1, RC2, and Ultimate. The curved plastic cases stand out and are great for putting all of your important documents... make other copies and give them to family members in other houses to protect data fully.

I burned Vista already about 2 years ago after 2 weeks of using it and I went back to XP.

I've been considering using the disk as a frisby for the dog, or maybe a beermat of sorts. Might even use it as a dartboard. I think the dvd case that it came in was more useful and less buggy, so I may keep that for something that's more worthwhile.

On a serious note, nice to hear others on here have no issues with Vista, but I, like many others will be glad to see the back of it. Too many niggles for me, and STILL gives me grief even after SP2!!

Windows 7 on the other hand, no complaints whatsoever. Well done Microsoft, you've finally got it right, at least during beta anyway!

Yep, I was running Vista 64 bit with SP1 that time and toss it out to XP 64 SP2 is very solid OS, now running with Win 7 64bit 7232 runs smooth, snappier and responsiveness better than Vista SP1 but I don't know about Vista SP2 this point.
