I keep seeing these articles on WinCustomize saying how we are doing to vista what we did to xp. I can't help but notice, though, that I see these articles nowhere else on the internet. Coincidentally, Stardock and Wincustomize have new applications that have brand-new vista features and some are vista-only like deskscapes. I just can't help but think its dirty to try to change public perspective just to suit your own ends.
Good theory. Wrong, but a good theory nonetheless.
I actually remember the XP vs 2k fight. I was one of those people who held out for two years before going to XP because I thought it was a resource hog, a useless upgrade etc. While Vista introduces a few new wrinkles to the situation, it is pretty similar to what happened with XP.
Personally, I'm still running XP at home and will continue to do so for some time to come. I even have a free copy of Vista sitting on my shelf, so it's not an issue of price. The issue is it will take another year or two for Vista to settle down, just like it took a while for XP to get its feet. When that happens, I'll upgrade.
It's a cycle with Windows OS releases. Release, 1-2 years to work out kinks, general wide-spread adoption.... New Release... repeat.
