I have given that received quite a few e-mail requests for pointers on clean Vista installs so I have compiled those conversations and am disseminating them for wider use.

Most people don't read the fine print: You will find 23 (count them 23) warnings and exceptions hid behind this little ditty (Some product features are only available in certain editions of Windows Vista and may require advanced or additional hardware) hid at the end of Microsoft's 100 Reasons why you should upgrade to Vista.
