We have Vista on our newest computer (the one Lynn and Laura use). We’ve had no problems with it whatsoever, and I find some of features to be indispensable (particularly its implementation of user-account controls, since this is a multi-user machine, and one of the users is a ten-year-old who really doesn’t need Administrator authority).

This proves nothing, of course, except that Vista is the right OS for that computer, given what we use it for.

I will say, though, that I think it’s unfair to blame Microsoft for the fact that so many software developers haven’t bothered to properly code their apps to run on Vista. Yes, that’s a problem; and yes, it’s a valid reason why a gamer might choose to stay with XP. But it’s hardly Microsoft’s fault.
