I have an M-Audio Audiophile 2496, M-Audio has no vista support for ANY products yet, and the Vista upgrade advisor specifically says my card wont work.

You'll still be abel to find XP. It doesn't really matter anyway because if you have a CD and a product key you can always reformat and install XP again. I just don't see people wanting to get XP when they get their new PC's.

It's being phased out in 2012 I believe.

how do you people who dont have xp know that there are still driver bugs?
ill let you in on a little secret, there are very close to none! vista is amazing, and it beats out xp by a long shot.
