See if you can locate a copy of RC2 - it's more stable for me than RC1.

The benefits are that you'll have the latest technology. The drawback is that there isn't much that you can do with it right now unless you're really into playing with all of the new settings.

It may no longer be available to the general public. As far as I know, the differences were mainly stability related. One of my bug reports (a STOP error when hibernating) was fixed with RC2.

I recently read an article that said there are 3 things good about Vista:
1) graphics handling
2) file handling and management
3) reliability/error reporting tools
