Nope...and I'm staying away from it as long as possible.

If simple programs like Google Sketchup have a problem running on Vista, why the heck should I upgrade?

Yeah I have it and I love it. I haven't had any problems with it being buggy or anything.

However, gaming performance is just so much better in XP x64 that I dual boot into XP to game. Other than that I use Vista 64 Ultimate as my primary OS.

I selected 'Yes, and I love it', but my opinion would be best described as Lovely but buggy. In clarification, I selected 'Yes, and I love it' because one day Vista will get rid of bugs, unfortenately I will not live those days, it's horible. A bit sarcasting, I know!

I love Vista, although it does have a few bugs. Not a lot though.

I have Vista Home Premium on my machine. I'm kind of 50/50 because their are somethings that I absolutely love (Aero, how responsive it is on a Dual Core, WMP11, Media Center) and some that I detest (User Account Control, the new Start Menu). Overall, it does what I need it to do, so i'm not complaining. I'm yet to find a bug actually, everything I have used it for works fine.

92% of teenagers have put some stupid made up statistic in their signature. If you're one of the 8% that aren't quite as gulliable, copy this.

I said other because I had Ultimate 64 installed (RTM) and it was the buggiest POS I've ever seen. I now have XP and Vista Ultimate 32 dual booted. So far it works okay, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
