Yeah, I have my magazine next to me, and from what I read, I'll never be upgrading to Vista. No sir. However, PLEASE let us know how your installation goes.

I can't wait to jump into the pool of Vista myself, but i'm not going to do it while the OS is still buggy, i'll patiently wait til it's all patched up.

Yup, I have no real need to upgrade right now, I can wait. The only reason for me to get Vista is DX10, and there really aren't any games out that support it right now, except Flight Simulator X (I think).
