I look forward to playing some reasonably serious games, such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, but cant at the moment (see "no mouse" above).

When I upgraded all my drivers converted right over. The only one I had to remove and reload was my HP 5100 series printer and it came with the vista driver cd. I also had to update the graphics driver for my intel chipset graphics. Which was online. Other than that I have no issues. My wireless network on the other computer took right off also.

I now have mine wired direct to the router and my wife'* core 2 system on wireless (vista) and the kids P4 system (XP) on wireless. Network working fine.

I don't think he is looking for negative input people.

Anyway, enjoy.

That feature is neat, but I stopped showing it off after a week. LOL!
Also, be sure to turn off UAC because it can get very annoying. To do so do the following:

Open Control Panel -> Open User Accounts -> Click on "Turn User Account Control on or off". Might require a reboot.

I don't mind the negative input. I have heard a lot already, but i figured I would try it out. I have had the oppurtunity for awhile and just now decided to do it. There are a lot of scary stories out there, but there was about XP when it came out too. I am actually enjoying it though.
