Windows 7 is far more reliable than XP was and is much faster in pretty much every area. Not to mention all of the things in 7 that make it easier and faster to use than XP. As if that wasn't enough it has better support for many things XP did not.

Using XP after 7 is released would be like going back to 98SE from XP now.

So true, been using XP for as long as I can remember, still use it extensively as main sys, I'll wait for the pre-order to come around before I go entirely 7. I do have another sys running 7 (7100) in 64bit, and am happy with it, runs fine. I havent thoroughly tested the appz I use on XP, though some wont work due to other reasons.

Thats funny, though alot will stick with XP just to wait until smoke clears, in this case it wont have to...

You mean DirectX 11. Win7 comes packages with version 11. Which will also soon be available to Vista but not XP.

Eventhough I hate XP and wish it would die...I still think that Microsoft should drop DX10 to XP users and let Vista users have DX11...Hand-Me-Downs here in their OSs

How I really feel? I would love to take every computer running XP (not in dual boot) and every disc with XP on it and stack them in a pile. I would then pour the gas to it and watch it go boom when I toss a match. Honestly XP...JUST DIE
