Can't say as I'm a Mac workstation and Linux server guy.
The rec.audio.pro newsgroup resently had a few threads about driver and
DRM issues on Vista.

thx. will check tonight and see what to summarize ...

Just about noone would even consider using Vista until the first service
pack hs been released, and many/most were reluctant even so, expecting
to stick with XP 'while supply lasts' and then merge to Mac.

just price.

Really? Are you saying loosing _hardware_ warranty for using another M$?
Here in DK it was settled by court that customers aren't forced to use a
specific OS, hence any hardware is fully warrented according to consumer
rights acts.  Whether the seller will/can help when using i.e . Linux is
another issue ;), but s far as M$'s (i.e. XP) goes, they'll comply..

oh. remember, this is spain. sunny people everywhere!
yes. these guys are telling that to the customers,
though maybe this is ilegal here too.
