Got my new( used) laptop

Two weeks ago my acer pooched , leaving me with just the iPhone for net access and today I was able to pick up another laptop for a nice price.

I have to transplant some ram on the weekend , cause this thing is running vista home on 512 megs, hopefully the two gigs that I have in the other computer will slot in easily.

For those of you who have either used vista or are using vista, any tips for making it less of a windows millenium experience, at least until I pick up a copy of windows 7 when it releases.

Hmmm, then again I could always nuke and pave with the other laptops copy of xp media.
