* The Vista Trap

The BBC's got a great article on how people upgrading to Vista right now are going to get screwed:

However, there are still plenty of wrinkles. The Windows "sidebar" may look nicer than Google desktop, but it crashes regularly and infuriates me because its "gadgets" can not be customised.

I've had two Vista crashes so far - not a blue but a black screen - and that really shouldn't happen. I can't even remember my last XP crash.

And everywhere I look, there are blogs and forums full of people who have problems with software drivers and suffer the poor customer support of the hundreds of hardware and software vendors that make up the Windows ecosystem.
Yeah. Stay off the Vista till you have to build a whole new box, then do the upgrade cleanly.
