    hw upgradation costs will be really prohibitive for most, so after the initial Indian launch euphoria is over, maybe we will still c a LOT of xp users still.

    anyway, vista will have 6 flavors and 2 more without media player for european market :

    Windows Starter 2007 - Limited version something like XP starter Edition
    Windows Vista Home Basic - For a single PC home similar to XP Home Edition
    Windows Vista Home Premium Multimedia Supportive - will include Media Center
    Windows Vista Ultimate - Has Media Center & Tablet PC features. Like XP Prof. + Media Center + Tablet PC
    Windows Vista Business - successor to Win2K Pro and XP Pro with Tablet PC support
    Windows Vista Enterprise - Superset of Vista Business, but only available to Software Assurance Subscribers(Enterprise Customers)
    Windows Vista Home Basic N* - Home Premium with no Media Player for em
    Windows Vista Business N* - Business with no Media Player for em

    are we waiting to see aero and some bubble screen saver on pcs..but being an A+ certified, I'm looking beyond that. having attended comprehensive training on Vista and working Hands-on RC2, am looking for more into Vista. when Aero word comes in picture, i agree with many of you. its needs more and more RAM.. get 512MB minimum or you are going to miss Aero. or if you anything other than Ultimate/Home premium you wont get aero.

    Watz in it for me to upgrade..
    1. Look out of MCE. it needs no intro..
    2. User access control.. makes things more secure.
    VSS(new service running in Vista)- makes you get back the files or computer you deleted(even if you did shift+delete). you can restore whole computer too. given that VSS is running.
    3. More comprehensive troubleshooting tools. - even if your system is down with Blue screen and arent able to go into any mode. YOUR SYSTEM can be restored and corrected.
    4. Do I need partition magic and some 3rd party tools. NO.. its built into Vista. So increase/decrease volume sizes.
    5. Parental controls to allow/block: playing games/downloading/logging into computer/going online/websites. No 3rd party tools.
    6. Built in antispyware\malicious code removal tool.
    7. Performance monitoring tools...Memory diags\
    8. Better Sync center. now sync your calenders\PDA's\flash drivers\
    9. Create you own power management. manage power to each and every device on the computer. Not just HDD/monitor.
    10. In built DVD burner. burn DVD's with more features.
    11. What if I have upgraded to Vista and I dont like it. I can go back to previous version. only upto certain stage.

    Vista is definelty and secure and recoverable OS. Working on it for a while now. I can say I will Upgrade to Vista. I agree with all you guys..vista definetly needs MORE hardware and latest technology. Installation depends on hardware. It might take 12 mins to 5hrs. to satisfy my mind...I will put it simple..Its still a Beta.
