I know this was news last week, but I thought it needed a thread because

- there's reports Best Buy will start offering free upgrades from Vista to 7 on June 26. Everyone else will probably doing the same somewhere around the same date, so there's no sense in buying a new Windows based PC until the end of this month. Even if you're not looking for Windows7, I bet sellers will aren't doing the free upgrade will be marking down Vista OS computers just move them.

- for those who have been using the beta: is it worth doing an upgrade from XP, or it still something I should just wait to get a new computer to use?

Well it's Vista, but much faster and cleaned up a bunch. Some nice new features in there. The reviews are MUCH more positive than when Vista was coming out, that's for sure.

As for upgrading, the system requirements are pretty much the same. I wouldn't bother unless you have a decent PC, with plenty of RAM(4GB really)

apropos of not much, there's an article in the new WIRED about the creation of the Ipod (taken from a new book on the same subject).
