Premium Vista

With the forthcoming release of the new os, it seems to me that the premium edition is going to be right for most users... I have three machines, two fast sli self-builds, and an Acer laptop which claims to be Vista Premium ready. I will not be taking up acers offer of a fastrack upgrade on the laptop, as It is my workhorse and having had a goo look around for drivers etc, a lot of these are still in beta so I guess I will buy one copy of premium and stick it on my 2nd sli machine. Only when Microsoft have ironed out all the bugs and all drivers are available will I consider upgrading the other 2 machines I missed out on the beta programme so would value anyones views on the new os.

Apparantly you get a disc sent out when you register for an upgrade so if you get the disc it saves you having to pay for an extra copy of vista, after all you don't have to install it straight away I don't think

I second that advice. Take the free upgrade and install it when you are ready.
