What do you think about it? It seems like just another way for Microsoft to make more money because half the programs are not backward compatible from Windows XP.

well, i have the newest rc and its pretty nice, @ least the version I have (32 bit) enables you to install old programs, but I think its stupid to not make the 64 bit backward compatable, @ least until theres updates for the people that have old stuff (like 4-6 years down the line)

I like the OS but I don't see how it'll be worth the amount they're asking for it. I'll be waiting until someone cracks Vista Ultimate (If it's possible to crack) or until enough programmers adopt it to begin neglecting XP. Still have a year before Vista runs out so I'll have plenty of time to decide, I guess.

How much are they expected to charge for it?

looks like 400-450 bucks or so. way not worth it imo

lol $400 bucks, cost of a computer itself. That's insane.

I'm not defending the high prices, but it's not like it is any more expensive than XP
XP Home = $199, Vista Home (Basic) $199
XP Pro = $299, Vista Business = $299

Not counting Home Premium and Enterprise since those are functionally more than the equivalent XP versions (and Enterprise isn't retail nor OEM available). Comparing XP Pro to Vista Ultimate isn't really fair as Ulimate is more like a Pro+MCE combo

OSX Leopart I think it's a $100 or $150 upgrade price (Seeing how Tiger was $100)?

I get it for free D
