    No. Vista won't be obsolte for years. I think W7 came way too early.

    No but XP has been obsolete since Vista SP1. Before SP1, Vista was good. Now that SP1 is out, it's definitely my OS of choice for any system. I have it on my 2gb/Semperon server rig, 8gb/Phenom II HTPC and my 1gb/Turion laptop.

    Yeah I wouldn't call XP obsolete if it didn't have the 3GB memory limit. Yeah there's 64-bit xp but it's really quirky

    XP is far from obsolete too. Go to any school or work office - tell me what OS they are using. ;)

    XP may fade a little when windows 7 is launched, but I can see XP being popular for atleast another 2 years. Vista another 5 or so, and I agree with hat - windows 7 came way too early, or too late - should have gone XP then windows 7 (or windows 6, of course), that way XP fanbois might not have raided the internet on vista launch.

    Can we move this in the "General Nonsense" area?

    This is not hardware related at all.
