IMO Vista is a step forward for the Windows family. BUT, it's gonna take time for software writers to catch up with it (and rewrite programs to conform with it's requirements).
Most programs can be forced to work with it - but incompatible drivers are a genuine PITA. I'd suggest checking to ensure that the system has Vista compatible drivers available for it's components. Otherwise, it's gonna be a couple of months before the less common drivers become available (For instance, I don't have Vista drivers/software for my Hauppage PVR-250 TV Card - but Vista installed the XP drivers and I can use Media Center to watch TV (instead of the software that the card comes with)).
I've been using Vista for about 14 months now and it does everything that I ask it to do - albeit with a bit of coaxing.
