    Clean installs are better than upgrades. You need to research to make sure
    all the hardware will work with Vista, and check the software for
    compatibility with Vista. Most problems are due to incompatible
    hardware/drivers and 3rd party software.

    On the security end you should learn about UAC and what it does.
