Question: I decided to get a new PC even though my Sony Vaio is only 1.5 yrs old bec it's so slow & keeps getting hung up... perhaps beyond repair or because my kids use it, so I want my own PC. Anyway, PC shopping I discover there's a new OS, so at first I think, Cool. I created an order with Gateway that has Vista as the OS for a computer that will be ready by March 20th. Anyway, I picked up PC World magazine where it indicated the Gateway FX530XT was the best of the new desktops, which I bought! I was so happy until I read the articles re: negatives on incompatibility w/drivers & software problems & that "first generation Vista desktops lack some of the components that take advantage of the interesting features in Windows Vista" I really don't want to get XP if they now have a new OS out there. Anyway, is it important for me to try to cancel the order & wait 6 more months? Or should I just go ahead with it now that it's March? I was so excited to get the new computer (continued).... and now I don't know what to do. I don't believe in getting the XP with Vista upgradable. I learned with my first computer that upgrading is never worth it. There are so many problems with upgrading, especially the OS, adding in expense and time, etc, it would be better to just buy a new computer & get the latest thing at the time. (So... no recommendations to get XP upgradeable to Vista) Thanks! Both RegCure and RegSweep have made my system worse and create new errors, so I had to stop scanning. So... they don't work! :-(
