    I think largely because I'm a rebel and when I'm told I cant do something that makes me even more determined to prove wrong. Partly, the same and I enjoy it and some programs I also still want to use. Otherwise, I'd likely go full linux. Hate to say it here.

    And if they're doing the job, then who needs the latest thing?

    I look at high res pdfs all day long, and guess what? xp displays them quickly and easily even with reader 5.0 (only some 'new' pdfs are straying from the standard and starting to cause version problems, but most people are still doing things the right way). With a video card/gpu it's even faster.

    Thank you ... but thus far I only use live DVDs because ti was such a hassle to dual-boot.

    if you don't want the hassle of dual boot/ multi boot you can instead have each OS on a plug in disk drive. This has advantages, boot is faster and you don't end up losing boot sector because you removed the OS which had the active boot.
