I'll probably hold off until at least the first service pack.

Although I might install it on one of bench machines at work to get more familiar with it.

I'm waiting a while to see what bugs get squashed etc. I have so few problems with XP there's really no point in spending the cash.

I will move to Vista eventually, I'm not an early adopter of OSs. I moved to XP 2 years after it's release and only because I had to...

I plan on getting it, me and my friend are gonna split it.

I figure, since XP is still ridiculously expensive for a 5 year old program, that Vista will not drop in price much or at all. So, why not buy it when it comes out?

Dual boot sounds good to me too.

I plan to get Vista Ulitmate asap. Student discount is always nice, but I'm also expecting free Vista Ulitmate from my school since Microsoft is just cross the street. Basically I'll have two copies.

I'm already running Vista Ultimate RTM (yes, it's a legal copy), but not on my main machine. When the 880 drivers are released I'll install it on the main system.

I will grab a copy for learning and testing purposes, maybe even put it on the ol' iMac instead of my test server. I wasn't real impressed with the RC1 so I'm not expecting much but I gotta know this stuff for later down the road.
