    Luckily, I work at a school, so I should be able to get it super cheap. But I have to wait a month or so for the education department to set the prices and all.

    I think the first wave of people to use W7 are really testers.

    I'll be sticking with XP until M$ stops providing updates, but if I was to switch to W7, I'd probably wait until the first service pack is released.

    Vista Home Premium ran me $249.99 and yet W7 Pro is only $219.99. I would say that is a significant difference. Perhaps that is just for launch or only for the d/l version?

    Anyways I will be getting it within the next month or two.

    Oh hell no. I'm sticking with XP for as long as possible.

    Why are you sticking to XP, if you do not mind saying?

    Many people won't upgrade until the first service pack comes out.

    Admittedly, some may not. However, it is already extremely popular, as pre-orders are the biggest ever.
    Besides, Thantos said stick to XP for as long as possible, not upgrade after SP1.

    And what do you care?

    Seriously though, if I feel comfortable and happy about something and it serves my needs, that's often all I require in order to not feel any kind of inclination towards upgrading my system or a certain piece of software.

    If it works and it works for me, why risk breaking it?

    I regard Windows 7 as something of a mega service pack for Vista. They really should have released it to existing Vista users for free

    Admittedly, I somewhat agree on that one. It really is what Vista should have been.
