The folks that post here do so because they have problems. Many more have
installed it without major issues. You need to consider is it right for you
to move to Vista? Is there a reason?
Make sure if you think about making to move to do some research. Check to
be sure there are Vista compatible drivers for all the hardware in the
system. Check that the applications you want to run will run on Vista or do
they require an update. Look at what options are available in each version
and decide which version you want, and research if you can upgrade the OS
you have to that version by an in place upgrade or will it only do a custom
Backup all your data, look at getting a drive imaging program to image the
XP installation before doing the Vista install. The bottom line is do some
work up front so you are prepared.
