Just another data point: I bought a Dell Inspirion 1525 almost a year ago,
with MS Vista, and promptly installed Ubuntu (8.04 I think) for
dual-booting, and have had no trouble with software at all.  (The original
harddrive failed quickly, but Dell shipped me a replacement and a 2-hour
restoration from backup was a breeze).  It's at 9.04 now (I won't upgrade
until I have a break in work where I can deal with anything that arises).
Still no software trouble.

I'd ditch Vista if I didn't need the Adobe CS4 (mostly using acrobat and
dreamweaver), and the somewhat better integration of presentation video and
graphics.  As it is, the combination meets all my needs very well.
