I got it for free and I'm still clinging to XP with both hands! The aero look is nice, and I do like having a search box in the file open dialogue, but all in all it needs a lot more work. The web server management app makes me want to get a shotgun and head up to Redmond, it's beyond frustrating. I don't think I've ever actually put up with UAC beyond the first session, it always gets turned off. It's a joke, a sad attempt to reinvent the wheel unix already has with "su".

When I went to charge my I-pod shuffle (the computer is basically is its charger) I found out that I-tunes v.7.0.2 is not entirely comparable with Vista because my AACs (i.e. Downloads from I-tunes) wont play because Vista will not let I-tunes authorize the computer.

Golly! I hope that's not as ominous as it sounds! If Microsoft released an operating system that intentionally disables Apple software, they'd have the Department of Justice back on their case like a pit bull!

OH DARN! I just read in a trade mag this afternoon that Vista could mess up iPods.

Apple is supposed to be putting out a patch to their software to protect it from Vista. Hope your iTunes and iPod are ok!

I-tunes does work but the songs I bought wont play because the coding to for software to check that I bought them is not compatable with Vista. The songs I riped off my CDs as AACs (as oppose to MP3s) work fine. Apple will/have-to make a version for Vista, it just take time.
