Well there is also Mac OS and Ubuntu to consider (cheaper or free).

I don't mind Vista too much. It isn't as nice as XP was, but I haven't had much of an issue with it at all. My biggest complaint is Microsoft Word 2007. I absolutely hate it.

Chrud I have had my problems with Word 7 too. Mainly it just to hard finding everything on it but it does do quit a few things plus intregates with MS Publisher that I use at work.

Secondary problems would be UAC (User Account Control) interfering with the installation and/or launch of several programs I need to run. (But, since W7 still has UAC, that's a wash.) I'd have to say that lastly Vista is an unbelievable RAM hog. There's no call for it to have such a voracious appetite. But, only time will tell if W7 is actually any better in that area. (I have my doubts. I think it's simply the direction we're going in order to get all of the eye candy.)
I'll likely upgrade the notebook to W7 just as soon as I'm sure I have all of the necessary hardware drivers. The two desktops in this house running XP Pro will likely retire (hopefully years from now) with that still installed on them.

Now there is no upgrade price for going from XP to Windows 7 and it's likely that once again when I make the switch a new printer and scanner will have to be purchased.
In essence this is forcing (all right extorting) me to buy a new system.
I'm not happy about this. At least Canon is releasing new drivers so that my camera will work with USB hook up to Windows 7. Makes me wonder if my USB harddrive manufacturer will be as charitable.
