    I agree that it needs work now.. Mainly other companies like nvida and other graphic card comps still need to release drivers.
    I wouldn't upgrade, but when I get a new PC, next year, it'll have vista, or it will be a MAC :D

    I think Vista is really good. I have just bought 2 copies of Home Premium. All my proggies and hardware work fine without a hitch. Really big improvement over XP.

    well i think its a good improvement but not revolutionary. unlike when xp was release, I was so excited to try it out. When vista was released, Id tell myself Id stick with xp for quite some time.

    The vista has been released with many problems.. they should of delayed the launch until they resolve the problems.. not launch it and make people spit at them...

    I have to say that Vista has a pretty nice style.

    I like the scheme of it but I haven't got it yet so I'm not sure how good it is yet. :)

    Personally I like it, i think it has some good things on it but it certainly doesn't meet all the hype that got generated by it

    I heard that it can't run Half-Life 2 correctly. If I can't play my favourite game on it, it can go die.

    I'll get it in 6 months to a year when all the issues are sorted out.

    I like it but have had some compatibility issues with the following:

    Tiger Woods 07 Golf
    HP Laserjet 1000 Driver
    Outlook 2007 is really slow in downloading POP3 emails.

    it's the same as XP a few years ago.. everyone had ME or 2000, said XP sucks.. A year later, you needed to have XP in order to run all programs, and 99% switched to XP.

    History shall repeat itself ;)

    Who cares about the specs?

    If all I can do is the same as I can do on XP, except slower, where is the benefit?

    In the meantime I will stick with my Vista Transformation Pack - as far as I'm concerned I have the best version of "vista" out there! :p
