all you guyz are right. Just understand one thing.
for NOVICE GUYZ: you won't have XP support anymore, so be with vista
I see some people say "i love the vista graphics", try UBUNTU for graphics and BackTrack3 (coders) and u'll forget windows

Waht kind of problems re you having with your printer? Is it an HP product?
I also just bought a new computer and had to get Vista. I have had some problems, mostly getting hardware properly recognized as easily as XP did. But I have solved most of the problems and Microsoft is working with me to get my Firewire deviecs properly recognized and operating.
One problem I had was that my duplex printing attchment on my HP 7410 OfficeJet wasn't recognized at first. On startup, Vista does not recognize this option but it can be changed. The second problem was that the backside of each page was printing upside down. This si a problem with a toggle not working and there is a fix for this. You can find it on the HP Support Forum under the rpinters forum.

Well good news and bad news. You can print to your PSC in Vista. Here's a document that shows you how to achieve that:
The bad news is, if they haven't come out with the full featured software package yet, they aren't likely to so you won't be able to use the scanner, at least not with an HP solution. You can however use Vuescan. Visit here to check them out:
I don't know why you need an adapter since the printer comes with a USB port and any computer running Vista should have USB ports available. You just have to get the cable, it's not referred to as an adapter.
