Windows Vista anyone?

Hi all, I am building two new computers and am wondering if windows vista is something to consider. I will also use one of the old ones still but I am needing to upgrade windows. Should I stay with XP Pro or go on to Vista. I use the video production bundle and will be upgrading that to the cs3 sometime this summer also. Any thoughts?

I was thinking I'd move my editing box to Vista early on, but too many reports of problems and slower performance with early-version drivers, especially video and audio card drivers. If I was building my editing box right now, this day, I'd still put XP on it. Maybe when the full Vista-compatible CS3 package is out, I'll give Vista a try.

Here are some existing threads:

The open betas will start in a few weeks, so you could start using CS3 with Vista.

Thank you Pete, John and Steven just the info I was looking for. I appreciate the help as today is the day to decide. I will wait till I have the Adobe update this summer to switch if I think its necessary. XP for me, for now.
