Vista will prove itself in time just like XP did. Drivers are the issue and you can't blame Vista for that.
Good point, didn't notice it. But you are right, microsoft can't be blamed for drivers, that is the manufacterer's job.

Vista. At least once the bugs and driver problems are ironed out.

dont purchase windows vista, a waste of money because it isnt as good as XP and i personnaly think it is bad because programs such as Nero Burning room is not compatible with windows vista and many other programs are not. so you might aswell save your money because anti-virus doesnt work on it, it has its own "Windows Firewall" and "Windows Defender" which i think is not that good.

Actually, they are compatible now. Nero 7 Enhanced was designed for Vista as well as Roxio 9. As for security, Norton 360 (includes AV and Firewall), and Norton Internet Security 2007 new edition has complete Vista support as of this moment. When Vista first came out, it was a dud because of limited support. Now, it's full blown and there are a lot more support for the new OS which is good news for consumers. Plus, SP1 is coming out later this year. I'm running Vista now and there are no incompatiblity issues. Even my Epson scanner just got support now for Vista!!! They finally released a driver that I need for the new Windows. Now, it runs great but doesn't use the Epson software anymore. It works through Windows software ok, but it still scans and does the job.

I thought vistas own firewall and av was meant to be quite good? Thats one of the good things I've heard about vista.

AFAIK vista doesnt come with AV, it only comes with a firewall and windows defender. You can get an extra package called windows live onecare there are mixed reviews about it.

Yes, Raffaz is right, it doesn't come with its own AV, but loads are avalible. Windows defender is actually quite good along with the firewall that is in vista.
