I wasn't to sure about Vista. All that driver problems, etc etc etc... But, I am one of those people who enjoy trying new things and anything at all. Got myself a copy and installed it. I was expecting to have crappy performance, nothing great from it. After 3 weeks with it installed, I have noticed that Vista runs faster, smoother and funner then my old xp install. I had more problems (not compatibility) with XP then I do with Vista. I was and am blown away with Vista. Just thought I'd give my thoughts on it. I love it.
