It is unlikely that we will change our test platform to Windows Vista at least until the applications catch up a little and the drivers are a bit more mature. Sysmark 2004 SE, does not support Windows Vista with the latest version (2004 SE), requiring the next version to run the new Operating System. Another issue is that Vista performance is not up to par with XP performance as of yet.
