    I thought it would be interesting to make a poll out of this.

    Have three comps built within the past 18 months and all will handle Vista quite well. The Vista compatibility test says there will be problems with some software programs and printer and scanner. I probably won't touch Vista for a year or two, if then, as I have read nothing that would make me want to make the change. IMHO Vista is a bloated OS offering little reason to upgrade, akin to 98FE to SE. In fact, getting ready to buy a Three Pack of XP OEM disc for future builds plus getting to like Linux more every day.:)

    Mine, for some weird reason as commented by the Vista Upgrade Advisor, will be able to run the business version. (Probably because I got it from my high school.)

    I am running ultimate with all the bells and whistles cranked. :) I gotta admit, I am confused as hell but it sure looks pretty. :p

    LOL, I have learned quite a bit about vista since 3 pm eastern and I am going to be stumbling around for a few days/weeks until I find out where everything is hidden.
