Do I Recommend Vista for Christmas?

LordKelvin asks:

Chris, I have been an XP user for some time now, and I am thinking of upgrading to Vista (mostly because it has DirectX10). However, I have also heard rumors that it’s UI stinks, and that it has many issues. What is your opinion on what I should do, and do you know any other way to get DX 10? Thanks for reading.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If it makes you feel any better, Jeb asked me the same question earlier today:

Hi Chris, I just found your chat room today for the first time. I wanted to know about vista. Through my school, I have the opportunity to download Vista Business and Vista Business 64bit. Do you recommend either over XP? I know Vista has many problems right now, however, I’m dying to play Halo 2, but very unwilling to buy a console to do it. (I love the keyboard and mouse setup.)

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If it makes you feel any better, Xenopax asked me the same question earlier today:

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If it makes you feel any better, Bob sent me a barely-intelligible question earlier today:

If it’s broke, don’t use it. If it makes you feel any better, I sang this song earlier today:
