I haven't had problems with Vista... I hate the UAC, but it can be disabled.
The games I've run are Half Life 2, Titan Quest, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Peggle, Doom3, Lost Planet DX10 demo, Company of Heroes DX10 and the BioShock demo.
The first two DirectX10 experiments were disappointing... very mild visual improvements with excessive framerate drops. However, DX10 on BioShock worked out fine, even at very high resolution. As for the "older games" (are Half Life 2 and Doom3 considered old?), no problems there.
I submit this to Microsoft for a marketing slogan:
"Vista -- it doesn't suck as bad as most people say."
