i dont support mac because i don't agree with their closed system. linux on the other hand i do enjoy from time to time however more as a novelty than something i would rely on for day to day use as i do windows.

I somewhat fall into this boat. My wife's laptop came with Vista. I'm not upgrading it because it runs perfectly fine, doesn't have any issues, is very clean, and paid for. I don't see any reason whatsoever to move her to Windows 7.

Hi there
don't forget there was a HUGE pent up demand from XP users who didn't want to go the VISTA route.

Now W7 has been shown to be DECENTLY runnable on even older computers (within reason of course) there isn't much of a reason NOT to upgrade.

The idea of "Virtualisation" is also understood by many many more people and on those rare occasions you still NEED XP it's easy even on a small laptop to fire up a Windows XP Virtual machine --much better than a dual boot in any case.

Cheers
jimbo
That describes me. And I do like Windows 7.
