Default Should I upgrade to Vista or not?

Hey guys,
My Vista Home Premium just arrived in the mail and I am not sure if I should install it yet. Are there any bugs still that I should consider or any reasons at all not to install it yet?
Thanks

If you are satisfied with your current version of Windows,why upgrade to Vista?Think about it that way.
I would wait until the first service pack for Vista is released :P

you could just clean install xp if you dont like vista right now if you can live with bugs its ok, i havent checked out your version though, also some hd 1080p vids play sloppy when you have dreamscene enabled

What is your reason why I shouldn't?

TheEnd: I am using onboard sound so that isn't a factor.

Can I just backup my data, and if I don't like Vista, clean install XP and put my data back on?

yes you could just back-up dataand clean install with a pirated xp. or why not just get pirated vista to try it out? lol:

Audio:i was also having problems installing realtek onboard audio drivers on my gf's pc when i installed it so i hade to put a sb live in hers i downloaded the drivers from realtek website but vista came up saying that those drivers were for x64 when i had clearly downloaded x86 drivers.
