    And is running straight into a major windows launch...

    Leopard will be better, don't get me wrong, but vista has corrected a lot of the problems of XP and gives Apple less to boast about.

    I missed out big a few months ago when it was down around $52. Big mistake, and I'm still kicking myself.

    I'm not so sure about that. Some people are enthused about Vista, but no consumer has actually used it yet. It's pretty, but it's also bloatware that requires the highest end hardware to even run. When a lot of people convert and find that their high-end machines then run very slowly with it, I expect we'll see a lot of dissatisfaction.

    It's also guaranteed to be more unstable than XP. XP has been around for a long time, its properties are very well understood by programmers, and has been patched thoroughly, while Vista is brand new and enormously complicated. Plus, it's only a matter of time before it's as vulnerable to viruses as XP. A new "more secure" MS OS is a personal challenges to hackers and spyware designers.

    Vista coming is one of the main reasons why I'm switching to a Mac. Tiger and Leopard sound superior to what Vista's going to offer, with far less bloat and without the integrated DRM schemes.
