Hold Off On Vista

Windows Vista hit the market today, but I'd hold off on purchasing it. To steal a bunch of self-promoting (for Mike Elgan) links from the Raw Feed:

1. Vista is incomplete
2. Vista is expensive
3. Vista wants a new PC
4. Vista is time-consuming
5. Windows XP isn't obsolete
6. Vista may be the best reason yet to buy a Mac

Here are 10 other good reasons to avoid Vista.

Seriously, though, Windows XP is fine for 99.9% of the folks out there, and I just have to wonder why we waited as many years as we did for this.
