Don't bother. There are no attractive features in Vista at this point.
If you're buying a boxed PC, that's different.
Well it supposedly will be a bit more secure.

In all seriousness, I like the way that it requires permissions for an app to install.
Yeah, that will be hacked a couple of times along the way, but when it comes to working on other computers, it's nice to know that most of the time the computer will be safer.
I've pretty much accomplished the same thing all along by keeping my downloads turned off until I need them on.
Over the years of surfing through risky sites, I've seen probably hundreds of
popups telling me my security settings don't allow the file to be downloaded.
I'm sure the majority of them, if not all of them were times that something was getting ready to install on my computer that I wouldn't have wanted to have happen.
And now even dumbasses will be alerted when that is happening.
