    Do you expect XP to drop in price or to stay around where it is? I see like 4 versions of Vista coming out over $200 Are they dropping at all?

    Nope, given microsoft's history - at retail the older their software gets the more expensive it is. My memory is fuzzy, but I can remember windows 95 being on the shelf where I worked well into the release of windows me (lol). The price if I recall of 95 gradually got higher, while I'm not sure that microsofts doing I certainly don't see the prices going down on their older operating systems because of vista.

    Windows 2000 still fetches a nice price, if anything they want you to buy the new stuff so they wont drop the prices of older stuff.

    Also since many many companies will JUST be moving over to XP, there is still a massive market for it.
