My day job is consultant. Here is my take on Vista.

Its GOING to be great. It has many changes which should make it more 
stable, and hooks written into it which should make it able to run some 
incredible software.

Unfortunately, we have to wait for drivers and updated software and new 
Vista-using softwares to start showing up.

Until then, the reviews seem to be that everything people have either runs 
badly, or if they are lucky then it runs the same as it did on XP. Very 
little actually runs better.

IF someone gets a new machine with Vista already installed on it then its 
usually OK (sorry about your situation Bob) because the company will 
usually make sure that the hardward does hve new drivers available and 
loaded that are Vista compliant. But an older machine where the wipe WinXP 
and load Vista is often a real problem.

Just IMHO of course
