      5. You need a faster PC to run Vista smoothly
      4. Can be turned off, but I have got used to it now.
      3. I found the Vista’s Windows updates is better than XP.
      2. IE 7 is slower than other browsers, so that nothing new.
      1. Yes, 1GB at least, 2GB preferable.

        Or you could get rid of Microcrap altogether and use a Mac.
        Vista is crap – full stop.

          I travel a lot. Spend way too much time on airplanes. So sad for me.

          Anyway, this does give me a lot of time to look around at what others are doing with their laptops. I see more MacBooks running Vista than I do OSX. Not that I am a fan but this speaks volumes about what people are running when $$ is not an object. Yah, it may suck but it sucks less than other stuff.
