So, I tried to use Vista Ultimate for a week or two but it's no good for gaming or complex mulitmedia right now...the final edition is stable and fast when not used with anything else but when you start adding codecs, the multimedia crashes 24/7. All hardware drivers arn't stable so sound only out of one speaker for me and video rendering was unstable. I loved the interface and smoothness but wtb gaming ability so back to XP for my desktop. Laptop has been running Vista for about a year now and is still happy so o well...

High Resolution Screenshot:

My side widgets are custom and not included with vista, with the exception of the weather gadget...background not standard but included in Ultimate. Default theme.

Shiny interface. Fast initial performance, quickly slowing due to software compatibility issues. Security will seem overwhelming to the medicore user.

Verisons are marketing excuses to make more money. If you end up having to get it, Home Premium is the max you need. If you can get Business, it's good too. Ultimate is a useless upgrade. Basic doesn't change anything worthy of spending time on.

Won't be worth upgrading to until early Q3 at least.

I'm going Mac OS X Leopard as soon as it comes out for general purpose on laptop. I'll only update desktop to Vista when I finally need to for DirectX10 games.
