Finally migrated all my softwares and development tools i use on to Vista. The process was smooth except for the fact that IIS 7.0 was not recognized by my SQL Server 2005 reporting services. If you run into the same issue do check out this KB article. Other than that the rest of the softwares installed without giving me much trouble and oh yes Vista is pretty awesome.
(Unfortunately no Aero interface for me, since my VGA card in my laptop does not have enough memory to support Aero)
