With all the buzz surrounding Windows 7 and Office 2010, it seems as if Vista has truly taken a backseat to all the attention it once received. As time presses forward, Vista's presence and footprint in the world is slowly diminishing. On the bright side, Microsoft will be focusing on Windows 7 and Office 2010 now so users of Vista and Office 2003-2007 will not be so "under the radar" so it may be the right time to jump aboard and use Vista. Also, it's now a mature OS so many of the problems with it are resolved. I myself didn't have many issues with Vista and thought the OS was a positive step forward and part of the evolution of Microsoft OS technology and they learned much from the experience, as evident in Windows 7, which users are finally satisfied with.
