If you do a CLEAN install, putting back XP from scratch, no. Trying to
"go back" to XP once Vista is up and running, from what I've read you
can't do. So before you decide you want to undo, remember you will
probably have to reinstall all your software and hopefully you have
working backup of all your files.

What software are you running that causes problems? List a few.
I have a very extensive collection of software, some years old, and
not the latest versions and EVERYTHING I've tested so far works in
Vista. So far the only issue I've had in doing a install in place is a
few of the applications needed to be reinstalled even though Vista
didn't nag and at first blush they seemed to work, but later using
them some features were disabled. Still, reinstalling the software
packages they work fine now.
I even have some legacy circa Windows 3.1 software, for example
Wincode, even it runs fine under Vista.
