Vista works well for me except there are issues with WiFi disconnecting.

Here are links:

So I'm NOT the only one on the planet who has found WiFi sometimes unreliable under Vista. Thanks for posting those!

I too have had some initial problems with wifi under Vista, however they seem to have automagically cleared up after SP1.

/crosses fingers.

i've never had major wifi problems with any OS (other than few driver issues and maybe router problems). I'm in IT so i spend most of my day networking and all that. I don't like messing with software too much but still, i guess i've been lucky :)

Glad this information is out there for the people that have been affected however.
