Performance wise, I would suggest that no one upgrade an older machine
to Vista, since it will be more taxing on your machine than XP or
2000. Since Pd can become quite a resource hog itself, there's no
since in spreading those resources even thinner!
If you're buying a Vista machine that's better equipped to handle the
OS, you'll probably have better luck. Nonetheless, I'd discourage any
early adoption until a few months pass and we can better see what the
OS is capable of. Who knows, it might be great, it might suck. Time
