upgrade now or not ?

When Vista came out, I bought an upgrade from XP to Vista but I never used it due to the many complaints I read. Now what is the best, upgrade XP to Windows 7 or upgrade XP - Vista - Windows 7 ?

not quite sure, but believe you can only upgrade from Vista..if you are running XP then you have to do a new install. I've been running Vista for some time now and once I'd stopped all the silly things like AERO it ran as well as XP. I will not upgrade for about 6-12 months as I like the user found bugs to be ironed out first. One thing to remember is that new operating systems are mostly just revenue generators for microsoft. If they just tweaked their existing operating systems then their revenue stream would soon dry up.

i agree with awest3
my laptop has vista and aero switched off and its fine no problems all is well
i have a desktop still using xp
and will wait for the problems to be fixed on windows 7

also i have more problems with xp than vista
