I recently read the article about Vista and it certainly casts doubt on my decision to upgrade ! I would very much want the security features, but having said so , it almost seems your signing your rights away to Microsoft! I would very much want to backup HD-DVDS , but there is so much nonesense Microsoft has apparently incoporated into it! Degraded quality, one backup per movie etc! I also have other software I use (ie shrink, decrypter , dvd maker, all freeware) that I don't want to loose!! Vista apparently reserves the right to wipe software off your computer. My question is to Vista users! Have you had any problems whatsoever with HD-Backups(two or more) and picture quality? Does Slysoft work perfectly? Have you lost any software?What are some of your likes and dislikes? These are just questions for my reassurance. I don't know anyone with Vista. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks alot!
