I have an HP desktop with Vista and an 18 month old HP Notebook (Vista ready) with XP SP2 . HP provided me with a Vista upgrade when it became available last year. After reading many tales of woe on this and other forums I have been in no hurry to ugrade to Vista. My desktop Vista has been relatively trouble-free but I have yet to install SP1. However, it's time to wipe the notebook and reinstall Windows. With MS support for XP ending next April (?) I'm considering going directly to Vista. Any suggestions?
I have a checklist of apps and drivers that may need upgrading, and backups of my data.
