Afraid I'm stuck with MS Office on desktop. I have various licenses 2000 through to XP Office and 2003. I quite like 2003, where at least they had a shot at their own graphics program with Picture Manager. But still a bit too chunky and labouring. Every Office suite they put out is far too expensive considering their command of the desktop market. Monopoly demand should scale into lower prices.

I try to use MS Office as least as possible on internet, where I think OOo will most of the time be the better option, providing the apps are supported. Google docs is a good example where I think some OOo apps come into their own.

And 2010 is coming in July  ;D

Don't think i'll be getting it though. I'm guessing it's gonna be like $800+ on release.

I used to hate vista and wanted to go to XP. But i'm getting used to it. I just hate the fact that nearly most games are incompatible. I would like Windows 7 for the speed, But I looked at pictures and the interface was ugly  :'( and theres compatibility issues again.

Maybe you think the pictures are ugly because you got used to Vista's special affects and all. ;D

If I had the money I bye it. my sister and nephew in Oregon, my older brother and his wife in colorado, my little brother and his wife in lakehavasu AZ. we all like to have a well cared for XP computer. only if it was a laptop ;D

I really liked Vista, but I love Seven! :D
I use both 32bit and 64bit which work perfectly and smooth!
Also had just good experiences with Vista, but with Seven its even better!

I'm happy that I installed the Betas and RC of Microsofts new OS. :)

My Vista system is barely 3 months old and I am reluctant to update it to Windows 7 as I still have so much to learn on Vista but I hope there will be an update to Seven when it becomes available in 2010.

I wish I could sell the old XP Home system but nobody wants XP anymore around here.

I think you find around here laptop with Vista is easy most common choice for personal. I advise this as good option. Laptop with Vista will often be no deposit pay over time.

Vista is probably Windows best foray into graphic interface since Windows 3.1/95/98SE winning run, though many disagree until they actually buy and master Vista.

If you have Vista 32bit and clutter your desktop (like download and run from desktop instead of, say, Program Files) and bloat out your Start Menu | Programs | Startup then your computer is gonna crawl.

Usual buy Vista with one year paid antivirus - Norton, Trend Micro, etc... Must do something when sub runs out at years end but many users delay because they still paying off terms and not willing to shell out any more cash. Very common situation round here.

Windows Vista and 7 are same its because the 7 is no a ram eater and i can say this im not really seeing a big thing but i can say Vista and 7 are both good. I just wait until the Windows 7 is out for see if its better than Vista so if it is then i will switch :). For the moment i use Vista. But i gived my vote to Windows 7 if i was having 2 choices i would say Vista also :)

     I see I am not the only one having trouble with vista and playing games. I mostly only do 2 games puzzle games but a lot of time in the middle of the game it will just have to close. I will say that is a strike  against vista.  :)

And 2010 is coming in July  ;D
