Most of my hardware Vista ecept the drivers but would not ecept the software. (A whole new ball game.)
May be I would have to wait a year before I upgrade any more of my hardware. (To be on the safe side)

Vista has a lot of neet features that I like:

With Vista it installed the drivers for my Hauppauge 350 TV tuner card and my Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Plattinum card. But could not install the software to get the full effects from my hardware, Will this change in the near future. (Or get the hardware off Vista choice)

Thank You:

Creative is usually pretty good about supporting their products and delivering updates, so I'd expect them to release updates for you around the time Vista goes live. (They're working on Vista compatibility and will most likely continue the support for the Audigy 2 Platinum.) Hauppauge, on the other hand, isn't that good with delivering updates and haven't even touched the 350 in over a year. They may roll out updated software for your tuner, but I wouldn't hold out too much hope.
