    As of next week sometime, I'll have one each XP and Vista machine running, because I want a no-pressure learning curve for Vista.

    I'll have a dual-core, 4G RAM setup for Vista Ultimate; I'm leaning towards Kaspersky 6.0 for AV-FW.

    Can't really see anything out there better (or easier, which ATM is kinda big).

    Thoughts?

    Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0 is a good choice for now.

    Can't ask for a better recommendation than that, I don't think.

    It would seem I made a good choice, then...

    Quite right.

    I'm already saving for an octo-core. :

    I'm dual booting my laptop with win XP Pro and Vista Ultimate. I have 2 gigs of ram and run NOD32. Works like a charm.

    I'm also using Norton Ghost 12 and backing up my drives every day just in case

    Just remember, if it says something along the lines of, "This software has known compatibility issues with Vista" blah blah blah, be very careful. I completely fubared my Vista twice before finally figuring out all the quirks. Haven't had to reinstall in over a month now
