Why would you be put off, of a quite good working Windows XP, by the
release of Vista? That puzzles me ;-) With a bit of a few help-programs,
you can make XP as safe as Vista, without loosing the performance. I se no
reason to jump onto Apple or Linux, because Vista sux, but that is my

MS just send out pre-pre-pre-releases of the next OS (Windows 7), which
should appear next year. It's supposed to have a tiny core, which with a
bit of luck will improve performance. But given that it is Microsoft, I'm
not counting on it. They have a deal with hardware manufacturers me thinks.
Because for every new OS, you have to get a faster computer, and that
faster computer comes with Vista, leading to a 100 million sale of Vista
(something like that, as announced my Gates earlier this week).
