Windows Vista,Constant Crash!!!!!!!!!!

I just bought a new Dell and it has Windows Vista, wile its nice in some ways it really seems as if they jumped the gun and released it too soon, and is more troble than its worth. Im crashing about every hour and its very slow with 1 gig of ram .
It is no where near as good as XP, at least for now. I just wanted to put it out there wait a wile before you buy, until the bugs are worked out

1 gig of ram may not be enough. Also Vista has some reported conflicts with the Norton Internet Security suite if that was part of your package from Dell.

After testing Vista and the lastest Beta version of Office we're holding off on deploying either until they get the bugs worked out.

I have one more gig of ram on order, but i think its more than ram that it needs it seems to be incompatible with my software as many times it shuts itself down
