I run 64 bit systems, both Vista and Windows 7, and have had none of the issues I've seen others complain about. Driver support is better now than in the past and it allows for running applications in x86 compatibility. In addition, 64 bit systems support more RAM which helps the system to run faster while remaining more stable. And 64 bit systems are nice for gaming and other graphically intense applications.

Windows 7 is currently scheduled for release early in 2010, but it wouldn't at all surprise me if they released it a tad early. It's incredibly stable even as a beta and driver problems are a non issue. It runs hardware that Vista won't and I have yet to find an application I couldn't install...though some have to be run in compatibility mode for Vista or XP.

Each operating system will have pros and cons, but it's the negative things one hears about simply because nobody complains about the good things. So...short answer...If you have the hardware to run Vista, it will not give you problems. Do not count on running Vista using the minimum suggested requirements without issues...you need a strong platform for Vista for it to run as well as it's capable of running. If you are not sure of your platform's readiness for Vista, stick with XP and wait for Windows 7.
