Vista Just a Download Away

Microsoft doesn't want you to go all the way to the local Circuit City to get your Vista fix. Instead, you can sit in your chair with your bathrobe (or whatever else you care to wear) and just download the darn thing. Sounds like a decent idea. I just hope there is a darn good utility to make sure your machine can handle what is a pretty demanding OS, and an easy way to back out of the deal if your machine chokes on all that code.
