Has anyone out there switched to Vista? Was it by choice? Did someone come and twist your arm and force said update?

I don’t know anyone personally who has tried out Vista and hopped over to using it with alacrity. (Yes, I’ve been re-reading Jane Austen–did my use of the word “alacrity” in a sentence give it away?) Nearly everyone I know is still very comfortable with XP and it’s service packs (they’ve already found THOSE bugs). We’re all waiting for Service Pack 1 and 2 before we venture.

And already Microsoft is having to make alterations (Registration for NYT required–it’s free). Google noticed that they were making it nearly impossible to use another desktop search tool (such as the one Google makes….).

So here’s to waiting for Service Pack 1–and hoping the other machines and XP will hold out until then.
