My Wife's new Accer laptop also came with Vista Home Premium. My Wife is a gamer and is not quite ready to abandon MS products....
My Wife does have many complaints about Vista;
Slow boot time.
Poor graphics card drivers.
Annoying security pop ups.
Loss of internet connectivity.
My Wife is considering duel booting with Linux. To each their own I guess. Some people seem to like Vista, I just happen to be one that doesn't.The article depicts the kind of problems I have seen.

XP seems to be the OS that most people will stick with, in my experience (unless they have taken a liking to *nix sytems, and can't afford a mac).
