for one question. The answer's yes, there is a new version on the horizon, but the horizon is a long way off.

Currently called Longhorn, the new version will be available at some point in 2006 - my guess is that it will be late August/early September, but nothing is certain.

with the 64bit version of Windows XP - two different things.

Microsoft promises that Longhorn will be much more stable than XP, it will have the ability to do many new things including Transparency effects and a new Sidebar which is to complement the Start-Menu not replace it.

The Operating System is currently still under devlopment, the most recent Alpha release was 'Longhorn 5048'.

Microsoft are now saying Longhorn will be available some time Christmas 2006.

I have found xp to be the most stable so far no problems

I accept that XP is stable, just saying that they are aiming for Longhorn to be able for instance to support more hardware, less hardware conflicts mean more stability.
