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

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.

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.
