Vista... as in a very far off view.

Well, the Vista experiment is over for now.  Two months roughly, and the verdict is remove and ignore.  I don't really need Vista for what I'm doing on a day to day basis, and until the first service pack is released, I'm going to recommend not using Vista.  It's too problematic at the moment and the fact that it crashed today during some routine tests nailed it.

At least most of what I was doing was on the backup drive, which is now sitting back where it belongs, in the external case for storage.  It'll be the drive where I keep near-line storage of my graphics, writings and reinstall files, and go from there.

It's not that Vista wasn't pretty, it's just that I don't see any rational reason to switch to it.  Full time, that is.  I'll stick with what I know works fine, and that's x64.  It's been rock stable, and the few upgrades I've made over the last few months only make it more stable while more responsive.

I don't plan a move to Vista. I'm very satisfied with my Mac, and can't wait until OS X Leopard comes out. :)

I don't see any need for Vista.

The graphical upgrades are pretty but useless. It's entirely chrome, no more, no less, and it doesn't have any effect on anything I'm trying to do.

The "security" stuff... eh. XP was supposed to have all this great security stuff, too.

As a practice, I wouldn't touch any Microsoft OS before the first service pack. Right now, XP is stable, working well, and sufficient for everything I use it to do. My one co-worker who's tried it has said basically the same things you have, so yeah, that just backed up my opinion. *chuckle*

I'm not surprised. There are things like when a program in the middle of an install needs to reboot, then fails the install because you're not administrator is a pain. And there are other things like all the renamed menus and burying common things under three sub-menus... the annoyance factor is much higher than before.
