Well...part of me says I should download it illegally. I've been downloading programs and such for years. It's easy and free. But then there is this part of me that sees it as..well..

I pay $50 for a video game that I play maybe 20 or 30 hours. I might buy three or four of these video games a year. That's like $200. For just a few hours every other day. Why not go ahead and spend $300-400 for a OS that I will use for probably 5+ years?

It only seems logical...

But knowing me, I'll download it when a crack comes out and probably buy it later, or with it preloaded onto a new pc a couple years from now.

Vista will get cracked very easily, Microsoft keeps trying to enforce security but and form of a Windows OS will always be cracked, because there is those Mac hacker idiots(not judging whole population of Mac by this, I use a Mac Mini myself and Mac people are smart)but those ones that are jealous of MS that their OS is doing better than Mac they will spent their lives just to cheat Bill Gates out of his money, which is wrong and that is why I will buy it.

I'd buy it if my mother has the money :P
Or else I would just use XP...

If this becomes like the switch from win98 to XP where everybody just had to switch to XP ...then i'd....well, i'd see...

Also, if skinning here at winmatrix moves to vista (where all the skins created are only for use with vista), then I would...well, i'd see...

I also agree with thoosje...life is expensive enough here. Vista costs alot here (USdollars times 2)

Im getting a crack for it, why would you pay good money when u can just download it in a few hours?

Are you really going to do that? Aren’t you afraid of Microsoft catching you?





Best wishes,
Kimmy

honestly, i'm pretty sick of vista already. i mean, granted ive never actually used it or anything, but i am SO sick of all the vista-like skins and apps and this and that and so on and so on. I'm in no rush to get vista. It'll be pre-installed on my new pc when i get one in a couple years or so, but i might end up getting a mac. Idk i'm just not that pumped about it anymore.
