When I first got Vista back in September, I installed CS2 with no problems.  I never had any problems running it either.  I have now upgraded to CS3 and I still haven't experienced any issues (knock on wood).  :D

The only problem I had with CS2 on Vista was the annoying "Register now" popup.  After I ran PS by right-clicking on the icon and choosing "Run as Administrator" it was able to stop that.  Also had to do this so a couple of my plugins would accept their registration codes.  Other than that, no major problems.  It's since been upgraded to CS3 which went without a problem.

I have CS3 on Vista Premium. Illustrator is crashing all the time since I have the Betterhandles plug-in installed (awesome plug-in btw).
Corel painter is crashing anytime a few seconds after startup.
I considering to buy a Mac because Im fed up with windows.  >:(

How new of a computer?  Did you build it yourself, or is it a pre-assembled one?  Is it a desktop or laptop, and how much memory?

My laptop runs vista (in 32-bit mode)...it drives me up a wall when the hard drive starts running for no reason--even after getting the memory up to 3GB.  My wife runs the 64-bit version of Vista on a machine I built last year--4GB of memory, dedicated hard drives & such.  Vista doesn't bother her at all.  At my day job, the machine I use runs XP.

At some point MS is going to stop supporting XP, and then you'll have to decide on whether to just keep running, or upgrade to whatever the latest version of Windows is.  Or you can avoid a future OS reload (and PS with all your plugins, etc) by going with Vista now.  But it'll drive you bats with how much memory it consumes just to present you with a UI, and by how often the hard drive just mysteriously becomes busy.

At least PS runs fine.   ;D

It will be custom built. Desktop. No less than 4gb of memory.
the guy in the shop recommended me to install XP but  perhaps you are right about XP having a short future...

XP is certainly fully capable and uses less system resources than Vista, just know that you'll have to run a 64-bit version of either OS to see your 4th+ GB of memory..  Since your machine will be new there should be pretty good driver support for Vista.  It was a bit tricky over a year ago building a Vista machine as several components didn't have drivers available yet.  I think one of the last drivers I had to wait for were Epson's 64-bit drivers for the R2400.
