I would hate to have to reboot now, seeing that I have got my PC as near as possible to 100% stability, even if Vista was a miracle cure OS!

Believe me when I say I'm not against Vista at all, I've not got the fastest of 'all singing all dancing' computers, only a humble but reliable P3 1.1Ghz.
hmmmm rebooting won't harm your computer :P

O.P. RE: VISTA...what do you think?
fair point.

Your About the same as me then with the pc at p3 and 1.1 Ghz. but you must have done some serious upgrades on that eg hard drive for all the programs..i mean a p3 computer cant possible have as a big a standerd hard drive in it when you bought it years back did it?

i was sort of joking, i meant that it was really reinstall instead of reboot :P

Err, why would you have to reload all of your software and settings if you just reboot? :/

Isn't there an option "When Microsoft forces me to"?
Well ill do it when I'm bored of XP which is something i don't see coming quite soon. Mabbe by the end of 2007. You never know. One morning ill wake up and just decide to switch to vista just cause i wanted to. Either that or till XP does something that ticks me off. Until that day arrives, I'm sticking with XP :)

Not planning to myself, still on 512 MB RAM and there's the costs.....

But for those planning on buying a new computer, here's some interesting news:
