Can't say as I'm a Mac workstation and Linux server guy.
The rec.audio.pro newsgroup resently had a few threads about driver and
DRM issues on Vista.
Just about noone would even consider using Vista until the first service
pack hs been released, and many/most were reluctant even so, expecting
to stick with XP 'while supply lasts' and then merge to Mac.

Really? Are you saying loosing _hardware_ warranty for using another M$?
Here in DK it was settled by court that customers aren't forced to use a
specific OS, hence any hardware is fully warrented according to consumer
rights acts. Whether the seller will/can help when using i.e . Linux is
another issue ;), but s far as M$'s (i.e. XP) goes, they'll comply..
