I have never heard it called Vista. I will stand corrected when Microsoft
posts me (as they do) my beta copy. I always thought it was calles Longhorn.

What, may I ask, is "Windows-based hardware"?

In any case I stated that I do not have to spend extra money on windows
*software*.  As to the hardware I have a very low end 386 machine that runs
windows XP quite admaribly. I also have a number of other "hardware"
machines that happen to run windows. They are not, however, "windows
hardware" machines.

You are beginning to sound like a standard microsoft basher.
