just my two cents....
I'm sure you are right about that...eventually. For some of us, Vista's faults outweight its advantages at the moment. I plan on giving Vista another go after SP1 is released. By that time, the bugs should be worked out and companies will have had enough time to release good drivers. Upgrading the OS should bring increased performance, not decreased performance, and Vista for me brought decreased peformance.
I sure do miss the eye candy and the instant search feature however. I am not a Vista-basher, and I honestly will be glad when I can move to Vista and have the same functionality as I currently have in XP plus all the new stuff. That time is just not now though.
