    Firstly, almost everyone says that upgrading from  xp is a bad idea and i should do a clean install.  This is not an option in my case since i have a lot of programs installed and i dont want to spend an entire week backing up and reinstalling them again.

    My laptops config is -
    Core Duo 2 ghz
    1 gb ram
    ge force go 7600 (128 vram)
    5400 rom sata hd

    The vista upgrade advisor says it will have problems with my sound card and bluetooth.

    Will this setup give a reasonable performance with Windows Vista?

    I have heard from a lot of people that Vista is super slow and that the nvidia drivers are way too buggy right now.

    So with all these comments I am a little afraid to go ahead with the upgrade.

    What is your opinion?

    Out of curiousity, where are the "negative reviews" from?

    Here are a couple of them -

    This one in channel 9 itself -

    This one doesnt look too good either -

    On the other hand, I would love to see some positive reviews of Windows Vista Wink
