Is anyone running Windows Vista RC1? I landed a copy and I must say it is lots better than XP. Not only is the interface simpler and easier to use, its 3D angled and/or transparent windows are very cool. Compared to XP, tons more info can be visually handled on the desktop. There was a video driver issue when I first installed Vista, but a download from nVidia solved that. If you play lots of games, I'd advise against RC1, but perhaps the issues will be worked out in RC2 (release cadidate 2), which arrives this coming week. For example, my PC dual boots either XP or Vista, and while Quake 4 runs great in XP, it crashes to the desktop in Vista. Anyway, Vista seems to me to be a bigger OS boost from XP than was XP from Windows 2000.
