Default Are you going to move to Vista?

so, when vista is released, will you be moving to it, or will you be waiting as long as you can to prevent spending a good deal of money on it?

Going to wait 4-5 months after release for serious issues to be resolved and more stable drivers.

I will switch over to vista whenever there is solid proof that it has performance gains in games that I play or new features that otherwise wouldn't be available in DX9 while maintaining a par on performance.

Yeah, I'm also going to wait a few months for any launch kinks to be worked out and for hardware manufacturers get their drivers up to snuff.

I'll get it as soon as it comes out, but I'm going to dual boot. Win XP will still be my primary operating system- I'm guessing for a long time still.

I'll get Vista when games start making real good use of it that forces me to drop XP.
