All very good points Wrabbit. For the average user though, the issue is the user interface. I think most people want the latest tech they can get. They just don't want their user interface screwed with. They're used to where everything is, and how it works.
Microsoft has the same problem as google. They're always fixing things that don't need fixing. For you, me, and other technicians, programmers, and power users in this thread, it's not such a big deal. To the everyday user, who is already intimidated by their computer. It's a disaster when you start moving things around, and changing how they do things in their OS.
So, they dig their heels firmly in place, and refuse to budge. This is another issue MS could easily fix, but they're too busy trying to dominate the world, rather than focus on building a rock solid OS, with a truly usable interface. Something Apple could stand to do as well.

I love(d) XP, but the thing for me, is that I'm a gamer. Most of the games coming out now want a 64b OS with more RAM than XP is allowed to have. So, I bucked up and installed W7 this year, when I built my new gaming machine.
However, I've only crashed 8 once and I was really asking for it, given the things I had running at once for inherent conflict.
