IE is garbage, I have it, but only use it for sites that don't support firefox. I installed the new IE when I did my windows update, but haven't used it. I use firefox instead of IE, don't like IE and plus firefox can be customised so much more and it's a little safer than IE. I remember I was on a board one time, and somebody posted a link (not to deliberately give people viruses), and the link was giving everybody viruses. The funny thing was, the only people that got the virus were IE users, it didn't effect anybody that was using firefox.
I also did have Vista, but switched back to XP. To be honest, I didn't have any major problems with Vista, but just thought XP was more reliable and Vista ate up more of your ram when you weren't doing anything. The other funny thing is that Microsoft were supposed to end there support for XP I think last year or something at sometime, but they ended up extending their support because not as many people made the switch to Vista as they would have liked.
I heard XP is going to be supported until April 2014, because so many people had trouble with Vista. By that time, Windows 7 should be in full swing. I've always liked XP.
