you can download a vista compatibility program that goes through your computers specs. and also telling you where you can get drivers and programs installed etc.

Vista looked great and all on the surface, however, the requirements for all the fancy stuff are simply a bit too much for my computer. It would've been a great operating system if it worked well with my computer. As for the programs which work on it, I'm not sure if there are many yet.

It didn't mess up anything. You just don't know how to partition correctly.

There a quite a few programmes and games that work on it, just not the ones you probably want to use, as in my case I can't get AVG to work on it and am now stuck with that PC-cillin beta for an AV.

Once all the error reporting software is removed for RC-1, or later, it should be a little faster. Personally, apart from the UAP and welcome centre (annoying but easily disabled) I actually like the look of Vista, though I feel I will hold off purchasing it until SP1, once it is out in general use there will be more bugs found I'm sure. With that said though, being so heavily d/loaded, if all the people evaluating it are using error reporting then it may a reasonably workable RC-1 that is released.
