I use both (on different machines). On initial use of Vista, the backup and restore facility didn't work with my Freecom NAS, although sorted by having mapped drives rather than UNC paths. I hate the UAC but I understand what it's for so I applaud MS for having it. Security is often a necessary pain.

I also don't like the fact that you can't drag and drop files into VS2005 like you can with XP.

But I'm now settled with it. I wouldn't be happy with it at work though.
