LogonStudio Vista is all nice, and delivered through Impulse, why not an updated version of LogonStudio XP?

One thing I would like to see is for LogonStudio to not kill Otaku Software's Deskspace program. If I have a custom logon screen loaded, Deskspace will not load. It works with BootSkin well.
I'd rather have Deskspace. I doubt that the "full" version will act any different than the trial version, so I'll drop LogonStudio.
There is no "full" version of LogonStudio. It is freeware and as Bebi said: No longer supported.
Speaking only for myself, I would not rush to drop support of the XP platform, maybe resurrect LogonStudioXP?
I say this because Vista is an abomination - in my experience probably the worst thing since WindowsME. . . come to think of it, I think it is worse.
Because of this (and apparently I am not the only one thinking this way), I intend to stay on WindowsXP well into the life of Windows 7 - say at least 1 year from initial availability BEFORE I even think about going forward. Therefore all things written to support/exploit Windows Vista/Windows 7 is of little interest to me at the moment.
(To support myself, Information Week recently issued an article about Corporate interest in Windows 7, the most asked about feature being WindowsXP compatibility mode. That really says something!)
Corporate is probably asking due to the cost of having to upgrade all their software if they switch over
w good faith & same reasoning I totally agree making the exact same deduction though most here seem to have missed the point entirely, fear not, it was not lost on me...
I actually still have my bonus windows 7 software pack still in it's packaging (from my Microsoft seminars last month) but one thing I learned talking the the guys who made xp/vista and win7 this and many issues are understood and realized and fixed in the win7. like they thought we wanted to run everything at startup and all the time in vista and completely took a wrong turn by that belief in making vista and have rectified that and many other things by listening to us IT guys and advanced xp users and what we really wanted & needed to work. Bringing me also to your point in waiting for bugs fixed and software apps to catch up is also usually a side concern, though I feel honored to be getting things long before the public. It's generally about a year before I start to use it on mainstream or on workload pc's usually just letting me have an extra I use to play with it during that year personally and not in office environments due to a year of SP's that blow things up but the new gen of windows offer a nice easy rollback feature that is always to be used before any updates.... what does this mean? it means there are many more users who think this way in the market that matter most as we keep the businesses running smooth and we know what works and doesn't fairly quickly in the combat zones! even the Microsoft designers agree that Vista was an abomination at this point and that win7 is the answer to xp lovers and is even so efficient that it works on older computers that have trouble w xp or vista, Hinting greatly at the optimized coding & efficiency. Win7 was very thoughtfully put together with a code of standards they stuck to in an almost exact opposite direction of the win vista which was heavy and about bulkiness.
...I'v gone on way to long, you's guy's get my point.
And what does any of that have to do with "updating" a program that works fine (logonstudio xp)
