Hi Kelsey
Yes It seems all thebugs in Vista are fixed now with service pack one. So you can go for buying it.As Noels said Visat sp2 is going to release so you can wait for that aslo. But there is one more surprise package by the microsoft in next year that is Windows 7 so think about that also. You have waited 4 years why not one more year. Anyways choice is your good luck.

DON'T DO IT! DON'T DO IT! DON'T DO IT! I work for average sized computer company and vista causes us nothing but hassle. When installing a pc with vista and attempting to update to SP1 most of the machines we work with BSOD randomly, this only happens with vista, and more importantly SP1 for vista.
Stick with XP for sure its a much better operating system and won't eat your RAM thats always good.
Vista is a flashy way of micrsoft going WAAAAYYYYYYY GIVE US MONEY THOUGH WE DON'T DESERVE IT!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO
*cough* sorry very frustrated lol any how if your really adamant on upgrading kick windows in the nuts and get yourself linux will take a bit of getting used to but is well worth it
hope this helps lmao

Windows XP Boss of all

Nothing can beat Windows XP. If it all about visualization now with the help of additional softwares everything is possible in Windows XP. Windows XP rocks.
