That's ok because it was given to me for free.
The driver model has changed and that's why you think it sucks. It's the 3rd party manufacturers who are not getting up to speed with driver releases that suck and not the OS itself. Vista Home Premium has a ton more features than
XP Home. it is closer to XP Pro with MCE built in. Now, what is so bad about that? I have had a few minor annoyances with it but once you start delving into it you see it is actually a pretty good OS. If you look into hacking Vista you can make it behave just like XP but that would defeat one of Vista's major benefits and that is added security.
