Glad you had success.

Doing a Vista on little sleep may not be a good idea :-/
Been playing with it since RC1, Some things are annoying but I am
willing to put up with for the added security from "malware" (no sneak
installs).
Drivers and old equipment (forced obsolescence) is the biggest Vista
"Gotcha".

IMHO it has taken Microsoft 20 years to come up with the level of
security that UNIX has (can you Unix types say SU?).

saw the spot. Check it out.. pretty funny (and acurate!)
