    I am thinking about it. Are there any upcoming games that require either Vista or 7? Is XP going to obsolete in the gaming realm next year?

    Vista SP 2 is really perky in my virtual machines. I pre-ordered a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium for my tower. I'll still have XP Pro and Vista Ultimate for other purposes.

    AMD really shines for virtualization performance right now. Maybe I'll get more RAM.

    Win 7 looks pretty good, doesn't aggravate me near as much as previous offerings.

    And looks like my company is fixing to make Outlook mandatory, so while I doubt I'll pre-order, I'll probably end up running it in virtualization. Kind of wish they had a basic version like Vista did.
