Vista works fine, it's a bit more power hungry than XP - especially if you enable all the eye candy (such as Aero). But it's every bit as responsive as XP if you have adequate hardware. I even have Ultimate installed on an old Toshiba M35 laptop with 1 gB of RAM and it runs fine. My wife has Home Basic at her office with 512 mB of RAM and it works fine also.
The 2 biggest issues that I see with Vista are:
1) Trying to use XP drivers on Vista systems. They'll work sometimes, but they'll do strange things on occasion. Stick with Vista drivers!
2) Trying to use XP applications on Vista systems. They may work, and sometimes they can even be coaxed to work - but it's so much easier to just install apps that are compatible with Vista.
