I just talked to a trusted friend who beta-tested Vista and isn't
particularly biased (he uses plenty of audio apps on win$) ... He did
say to avoid installing Vista at the moment, especially for audio.
Your performance would probably take a hit. I know this is slightly
OT, but probably worth stating for the record, for PD users who might
be considering it.

Of course, if someone had access, it might be interesting to try PD on
Vista for a test, and report back. But for now it's not recommended
for PD as far as I know.
