The following article seems to indicate that VISTA actually slows down applications.

Anyone that upgrades to Vista voluntarily, prior to a Service Pack 1 being issued, gets what they deserve, IMO. ;-)

I plan on giving serious consideration to Vista about the time that
Service pack 23 comes out :D

Someone recently posted a technique for getting Photoshop CS2 running under Ubuntu Linux with the WINE platform.

By the time I need to consider Vista, I think I'll be running exclusively on Linux. Maybe with a Virtual Machine copy of XP or some such for the odd time I need windoze.
