    Can anyone tell me the pros and cons of Windows Vista vs XP? Is XP worth the extra $100?

    Thanks for any advice you can give me.

    Get Ubuntu and OpenOffice.

    Both free and work much better than windows.



    But, if you must have windows, get XP. Vista stinks.

    Bollocks! Feller is finishing up his PhD in computing science and this is the ONLY operating system he will use.


    Sounds to me like IT guy is pushing MS for a reason.

    It is because it is what he believes is the best functioning and most useful. He doesn't work for MS. [​IMG]
