Well I tried Vista for a few days on my new laptop. Unfortunately, I found it every bit as bloated and slow as rumors said. I have since wiped off vista and put on XP and Ubuntu. Sadly, I found a harder time getting drivers for XP than I did Ubuntu. New Asus laptops seem to be ill supported for the 'old' XP os. :/ None the less, things are all up and running now which is good. I would hold out for Winblows next OS personally. They seem to go in a 'hot/cold' or.. vice versa patern. 95... kind of crappy, 98, pretty decent, ME... horrid, XP, pretty good (aside from memory leak), Vista... so far pretty lame. I'm hoping the pattern will be true, and their next OS will be ok. Kind of a funny thing, a Windows rep at a conference I was at earlier, neglected to put ME on their 'os timeline'. When asked why, when he was accepting questions, he hung his head a little and joked that at Microsoft they refer to ME as 'Major Embaressment'. I found that pretty entertaining.
