    As title..is it worth going to XP when Vista isn't far away? I've been happy with 2K for ages but wanted to upgrade now as some software can be picky.

    How long a shelf life will XP have? I'm so confussled :confused:

    Depends on your system..if your PC is a stock 2000 machine, then it probably won't run Vista happily.

    /Edit Personally, I'd upgrade to XP for the time being. See if Vistas worth the hype :p

    Vista worries me, so for anything other than testing and what not I'll be sticking to XP on my Windows workstations. It's a fine platform.

    Agree with Otacon (not just because he bans me). XP is great, I far prefer it to windows 2000. I can't even tell you why it just feels like home now!

    *hugs windows xp*

    having said that the first thing I do is change everything so it looks like windows 2000 :D
