Default Win a Copy of Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED

Would you install it on your current computer, currently running Windows XP or a lower version of Vista? Would you donate the software to charity? Would you build a new computer and use this OS? Or give the OS away to someone who doesn't yet have Vista? There are no right or wrong answers, I'm just curious to know what you'd do.</p><p>The contest is open until Thursday the 5th of March, 2009, at 3pm GMT -7. One entry per person.

I would install it on my new MacBook Pro using VMWare Fusion.

Default I'd use it!

I tried Vista when I bought a new PC just after it came out. Much of my software didn't work. I had trouble with drivers. I returned the machine and bought one that still had XP. Since the various SR's, I would give it another try, although if I were to buy another machine, I'd wait until the next version of Windows....whatever Microsoft is calling it these days. I'm not enthralled with MS's attempts at new operating systems.

Thanks, Jason!

I'd build a new PC, with top of the line components, for my grandson.

I would use the software on my laptop that is currently running Windows 7; once the beta testing period expires, I'll need to install a fresh OS and this would be a winner!

Default What would you do?

This would replace a Windows XP version on a Dell that missed the free Vista upgrade.
Then I would volunteer some time with World Vision.

I'm planning to build a Media Center PC and this would go on that so that I can dump cable and watch my shows online, instead.
