  1. I am buying a new computer for my business. I have a choice from Dell to use XP Or Vista . My thought was to stay with XP however I understand the support downloads ends in 2 years. Should I stay with XP Or change? Thank you

    You can always upgrade to Vista in two years no matter what :)

    Assuming that everything is running just fine on XP at the moment.. Switching to a new OS with loads of compatibility issues and the need to relearn many things will disrupt your business considerably. Can you afford that only to have the latest and greatest slowness in 3D?

    Go for the XP option or wait for Vista SP1. No contest.
    There is supposed to be XP SP III soon which should make the thing even more stable.
