Anyone made the permanent switch to a retail (or OEM) copy of Vista yet?

Just curious to see how many of us are hopping on the WinVista bandwagon? After seeing Kemp's spiffy arse copy of Ultimate I had to go out and pick up a copy (I opted for Business rather than Ultimate as I don't need the MCE bundle).

It should be here on Monday, at which point I think I will make it my primary OS. All of the games I play worked fine when I was using RTM so I imagine support should only be getting better by the day/week/month?

How are the G80 Vista drivers treating people???

I will get it when i have the money to which will probably be around when SP1 is released. Hopefully full support (or almost) for everything will be availible.

And u prolly won't miss those few FPS all that much anyhow I'd rather be rockin' Vista with a few less FPS than XP wit a few more

Glad ur likin' it. Can't wait to get my copy installed on the new puter.

Vista's nice, but it's starting to slow down and be a real dog .
