    great scoop 🙂
    can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, but the prices are ridiculously high.

    Yeah, very high prices! I wonder if they’re trying to price themselves out of the market?

    Personally, I believe now’s the right time for alternative OSs to shine.

    The prices are estimates, mind you… actual retail prices in Malaysia might be lower. Frankly, I couldn’t be arsed about the prices… however, there seems to be some pretty interesting news about Vista on the security front 😉

    I wouldn’t mind switching OS’s if it’s just a question of productivity. Openoffice is just bloody excellent – and better with 2.0 and it’s free! but there are downsides for not going Windoze: games, man, games.

  5. Site Admin Azmeen Says:

    Ahhh… I don’t play games that much. But for those who do, I’d just like to say: winex, man, winex.
