Yes, it has a lot of backwards compatible problems -- I can't go into details, but we worked with MS through the rc stages of Vista to deploy "a thing" (*), and had numerous problems with existing (modern, new) hardware not quite working right. The driver situation needs to mature first -- give it time, it just came out in final release. Let ATI, Nvidia, etc. all get their issues solved before diving in hardcore would be my advice.
(*) being deliberately obtuse, it's a NDA thing
