Can I assume that smooth running in Vista will mean the same for XP users?
I hope I don't have to program separately for the two platforms.

Code for XP but design for the Vista UI. Why? the Vista UI has larger
default fonts. Having just gone through *hundreds* of dialogs
re-laying them out for Vista, I can honestly say that (a) I wouldn't
want to do this again and (b) I'd like to personally shoot the SOB who
authorised this design change.
