Is it a beta copy? My son tried it awhile ago but the issue was with drivers at that point. What I did see was fast...

It strays a bit, so it will take some getting used to. They've definately reworked some stuff.

Just an update since it's officially released.

I switched over to 64 bit and now Dell has release all their drivers, it's working flawlessly. I can't go back, I'm so happy with the increased responsiveness.

Anyone else upgrade yet?

You poor bastard. That OS should've never seen the light of day. It's the most gigantic piece of crap I've ever seen. Makes Windows 98 look like the most stable piece of software ever released. Haha.

I really wouldn't recommend Vista.
50% of the users won't even switch over because of whats going to happen if you have any stolen/downloaded software on your computer that you didn't pay for. IF you have any of that, Microsoft will lock your computer. You literally won't be able to turn on your computer.

Most users out there use p2p software, and allready dislike Vista because of this.
Also, consider that 90% of the people who used XP out there downloaded it. That isn't going to happen this time.
Take it from someone studying Comp. Programming....STICK WITH XP!

Its funny, the new Amiga O/S just recently came out. It is something like 50MB total, and runs incredibley fast with no issues. Too bad there isnt any software to run on that O/S from this century.............

I'd imagine I'll be sticking with XP for a long, long time. I'm not into all of this DRM stuff that Stratocaster mentioned. Even if I was going to switch, I'd wait until the first service pack came out just to be safe.

I just bought a new laptop...I'm totally uninterested in switching to vista (drm on principle and a host of other issues I have with it). xp pro is solid and none of the new things they've implemented matter to me. Buying my wife a new laptop soon as well...so I'll get to check out vista firsthand before we format it and install xp pro.

The worst part is, it's not even Microsoft's fault! They never wanted to put any of that crap into it.

What happened was, Microsoft's enemy, Sony, took them to court and got them to put a whole bunch of shit into Vista that they never wanted to put.
