So at the moment Windows 7 look nicely -- use it before Windows 8 release as AMD/Intel are development new 128bits CPU.. keep watch for latest news,etc..
That is pure speculation on your part, unless you have links that these statements are true. Only time will tell what the future holds.

While many people can't justify spending $300 dollars for a new OS every 3 years; on the flip side many people are willing to do so. Regardless, MS doesn't FORCE you to buy the new OS once released. So if by 2012 you are perfectly fine with running Win 7 on your machine, then by all means don't upgrade. But, if you feel the need to upgrade, well hey, good for you. I don't see the point of trying to justify spending $300 every 3 years unless between now and 2012, MS makes an official statement saying that every Windows user HAS to upgrade to Windows 8.

Of course, most people don't have to pay $300 for Windows either. Aren't the Home Premium upgrades around $100? Who doesn't qualify for an upgrade version of the software these days????

hahahahahahaha sorry to make an off topic again but in order to know 2012 was suppost to happen, around may 2009, we were suppost to see some type of a "black dot" on the sun that was suppost to be the revealing "planet x" or reffered to as "nibiru" but it didnt show up...too scared of mother earth? So i am guessing we all going to live through 2012.
If so, ima buy a plane ticket, go to mexico and go to where the mayans are at and LAUGH OUT LOUD at their faces and say how much they really fail on predictions. then go back to america, find nostrodamus and say...."it didnt happen...HA HA...HA.HA" lol

then i go out to buy a new laptop with windows 8 in it and live my life as a 22 year old person.

It has been clearly said by the MAYANS THEMSELVES that they don't believe in this prediction....

It was started by people who followed the MAYAN calendar but have no affiliation with them

ima still go watch the movie just for entertainment. But we all know it yet till 2011. NASA still claims they see another solar planet heading towards our solar system. But i wont choose to believe it. So much for 2000 for computer crashing and that. LOL

W7 Pro 64
 
 

to get back on topic:
Most home users just switch whne they buy a new PC. In caseof Vista-->W7 there will be many people who will switch out of the ordinary cycle since W7 uses less resources. typically every OS uses more resources (since it can do more) and a hardware upgrade often is recommended.

to the cost: the example here with W7 ultimate is bogus. first, anyone would get an upgrade, so it wouldn't be that much. Second, W7 ultimate is way too much. for home users even with home network the home=professional is fine. Family pack is $ 150 for 3 PCs.

I have W7 Pro-64bit on my desktop and might get another license (I'm a student, so it is only $ 43 for my wife's laptop or a potential second desktop/media center. I plan on skipping W8 unless it really has some great advantages over W7. It would be too much hassle and cost to maintain so many different OS at home. If we ever need a new laptop, it will have whatever it has at that time since you can't buy one without OS. But any desktop is manually built by me and I may carry over my W7 license for a long time.

The real good thing about W8 is that it is supposed to finally kill 32-bit. It is costing society so much to have the inferior 32-bit and 64-bit around. The only disadvantage of 64-bit is that some manufacturers still live int he 32-bit world and they need to be forced to adapt or die. FYI: It is 2009... and 64-bit has been around since XP.

Edit: I hope they get rid of the many versions. Have a home version (similar to home professional now) and a professional with everything in it. Like in XP days. Assuming only 64-bit, that makes 2 OS to chose from and to maintain. what they are doing now is just insane.
