lol, that's a good and entertaining read shdwslan...but it's a form of misdirection.
If you want to be really biased...for example
Going to Adobe's site and reading on CS3, you will also see they suggest you not really use it with Apple's new OS as well. Who's more responsible for getting their app to work with an OS, the app maker or the OS platform?
DVD shrink works for me
as well as DVD flick
as well as dvdfabdecrypter
powerdvd? don't use it
nero...don't use it
do a search for bluetooth issues and you will realize it's a bluetooth thing and not a MS/Windows/Vista thing
Live Search: bluetooth issues
no bsods with my hardware and vista yet, during beta and almost a year of retail

There are so many RAW file formats in the marketplace that it's becoming a major problem. Here are just some of the RAW filename extensions that indicate different and incompatible formats.
DNG (Digital Negative). Camera companies have introduced many different, and frequently changing, raw file formats. For example, one source states that there are over 140 RAW formats with more coming—some of them specific to a single camera model. On top of this, manufacturers are often pointlessly secretive about their specifications so there are almost always RAW files your software can't read—at least until someone reverse engineers the formats so they can support them. This lag time and inconvenience can be laid at the doorstep of the camera companies. These proprietary RAW files are at risk over time since companies come and go and interest waxes and wanes. One solution to this growing problem is a new Adobe format called the Digital Negative (.DNG). This publicly defined and openly shared format for RAW files is an attempt to ensure that you will be able to access your image files in the future. If your camera doesn't capture RAW images in this format, you can convert them to DNG using a program such as Photoshop or Lightroom. When you do so, you can even choose to store the original RAW image inside its DNG file so you can extract it at some future date should you need it. The DNG format is supported by Photoshop and other Adobe products, some other software companies, and a number of camera companies. As with all things in computing, only time will tell if the format becomes widely accepted or gradually fades away.
no big list of problems and no horrendous problems with Vista....
so the example from shdwsclan is one of those that is completely opposite from mine and often very misinformed
