That is so TRUE. No wonder Microsoft makes billions of dollars.

I completely agree. XP is "only" ?99 (home edition) or ?149 (professional edition), but $450 ! You can build a middle performance PC for that price ! That's just too much. Anyway, I won't be buying Vista until I'm forced to, because, as they said in the "user friendly" comic strip, "[it does] everything XP does, only for more money and fewer consumer rights".
I'd tend to disagree. In the PC (the broad meaning, including mac, sun, etc. -- personal computer market) market, I think this was not the best thing that happened. Windows, until it was out in it's 2000/XP edition, was very unstable, buggy, and you had to reinstall it every six months.
In that respect, I find Apple's system (at the time of Win98, it was Mac OS8) was more stable, and had better functionality. The problem is Apple didn't open to the market like the PC/Wintel platform did, remaining all proprietary and high-priced, that' why they never grew, until recently (IMO).

Now, I find some linux distros like Ubuntu (that are free) are very clean and stable, too, they're very complete and can, for the basic user that uses his/her computer only for surfing/using email/doing text processing, be used as well as windows.
The problem is, for power users or users who require some special software (like 3D imaging software, video editing, etc.) that these applications exist only on windows most of time, sometimes on mac, but extremely rarely on linux.

And, even if I don't really like microsoft, and I know thet bought/stole-and-then-later-won-the-trial most of the technology they use, from DOS to the 2000/XP kernel, I learned not to associate a product and it's editor.
So I may not like microsoft, but the fact is windows, with XP, reached a state where it's useable, sufficienltly stable, and well, I use it everyday :D

The joke comes from The Joy Of Tech, which I read often, and they tend to love Macs/Apple, that helps with understanding the context and the answer the salesman does. Nevertheless, it's funny.

I'm really curious about Windows 7, as some are already running but still unstable.

Any comment to this issue? ... Schedule, stability , hardware/software compatibility and real value to upgrade...
