If you've already done your Christmas shopping and are just hanging around the house for a quiet evening, you might want to check out this tongue-in-cheek blog post about the pros and cons of upgrading from Vista to XP.
Excerpt of the blog posting's conclusion:
Microsoft have really outdone themselves in delivering a brand new operating system that really excels in all the areas where Vista was sub-optimal. From my testing, discussions with friends and colleagues, and a review of the material out there on the web there seems to be no doubt whatsoever that that upgrade to XP is well worth the money. Microsoft can really pat themselves on the back for a job well done, delivering an operating system which is much faster and far more reliable than its predecessor. Anyone who thinks there are problems in the Microsoft Windows team need only point to this fantastic release and scoff loudly
Hopefully, Vista SP1 that's slated to be released in the first quarter of 2008 will resolve most of these issues.
