I've been using Vista Enterprise edition for a couple months now (I got an early crack at the release through the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UIUC) and, though I have to admit it is better now than when I first started using it, the support is simply not there and not one of the games I have play as well on Vista as they do on XP...Things will get better I'm sure, but as of right now there is little to no reason for anyone to upgrade to Vista.

This is the same as XP. Vista is rewritten so it has the same kind of compatibility problems as XP did when it came out. Vista was rewritten to a much deeper level though so the hardware/software compatibility is slightly worse.
