Default Windows Vista Question???

Well, I've recently built myself a new PC. Thanks to those around here that gave me feedback to help me make my decisions from.

This has createn a whole new series of problems caused by my obsessing over getting as much performance out of the new outfit as I possibly can.

I have no interest in setting up a RAID array, yet. But, I wanted to get AHCI enabled in order to take advantage of the NCQ capability of my HDDs. With WinXP Pro it is NOT easy to do!!! I have wasted too much time trying to enable it and have given it up as a lost cause for now.
So, my question:

Is Windows Vista going to be any friendlier for setting up AHCI than WinXP Pro?
Thx for any feedback on this.

Hopefully it will be. As turtile said, if you are a member of MSDN or know one, try out a beta copy.
