XP has become the most used ( well probably ) OS in the market, and has stayed there scince it's presentation, for the new shift in the Shell Look, Added Plug-And-Play, and everything else.
And XP is designed for computers that is in reach of almost anyone nowadays. I have 512 RAM, 80GB HDD, 128MB Vid card, and i can multi-task the Dos code outta this machine without ever feeling any lag.
But the fact that Vista requires a MINIMUM of 512 to operate, at minimal settings, troubles me to the highest point.
Not everyone is ready to afford 1, and 2 GB of RAM, and the more powerful vid cards, etc etc.
I think Vista will be a MAJOR FLOP in the first few years because of this. Untill the people have no choice but to upgrade, because of the new PCIE technology, XP is and will remain the most used.
Myself was planning to switch immediately to Vista once it came out, but after looking over the specifications, i've come about entirely, and will stick with XP as long as i can.
For sure, i will at some point experiment Vista, to get a feel on it, but i seriously doubt it'll be as popular as Gates thinks it'll be.
Especially with the major 3 plans that was supposed to go into Vista, notably the new WinFS file sytem, that arent going to happen, i dont see the point at all.
And like one of you said, if you watch what sites you visit, XP security is amply good.

And 512Mb is getting the standard and the fact that you can buy new memory pretty cheaply and most new computers sold by the time it is released will have at least the minimum.
Requirement but microsoft arent selling it as the next OS for everyone at least not at first, its going to be people that play games and do alot of multimedia work people with good systems and who want the best performance for what they do.
MS say that Vista will run better than XP on any system that meets the minimum requirements it like alot of software it uses as much resources as you tell it to, if a game is lagging you turn down the detail settings its the same for Vista.
Ill probably get vista, by the time it comes out i should have 2gig of ram and at least a 512Mb gfx card, maybe an X2 if i have the money, so ill be fine and all my lan party firends will be fine. As a keen gamer i cant wait its going to put the PC even further ahead of consoles when it comes to gaming.

Vista will require higher system specs than XP, but I think it will work on the majority of systems sold in the last couple of years. XP doesn't perform very well with 256MB of RAM either.
