First I will be waiting till my xp machine dies before I get a new computer and I refuse to buy a new OS till I get a new Computer so it may be a while before that happens. I am happy with xp. 7 is far better then vista. but xp is stable perfect for my everyday needs. give us a option of just expansion packs for xp for smaller amount of money I may give in a pay some money

I'm going to be perfectly honest here. I've been playing around with 7 since beta, and I really do like it, but the only significant difference I can make out between this and Vista is the taskbar. That's it! Sure, the taskbar is like a gazillion times better than the ones in Vista or XP or classic, but it's still like the ONLY perceivable difference that actually really affects the end-user experience.

Unless I'm missing some huge incredible feature that I never realized existed or simply isn't prominent enough for me to have noticed, how can so many people say "DUDE 7 IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN VISTA"? There were a hell of a lot more positive differences between Vista and XP (most of them Explorer-centric) than there were between 7 and Vista.

Please dear God in heaven, someone point out to me what actually makes this worth upgrading from Vista to 7 for.

And don't tell me that it crashes less. Because Vista never crashed for me. And also don't tell me that Vista had compatibility problems. Because only one thing in existence failed to work for me on Vista, and it was Metal Gear Solid 2.

If there is a Premium like edition for $99 without freaking DRM aka limited installs.

Sure I will buy it :D.

Or at least do a Far Cry 2... refund the install so you could reinstall it WITHOUT losing one of your installs.

But thats not going to happen.. the 99 dollar price in which does not expire after X number of installs.
