It doesn't like Vodafone dongles, so if you use those to connect, it may
be best avoided. I haven't has any other issues so far, though there are
scare stories going round (Telegraph and Sky News among other sites).
Whether it's FUD or real I can't say. Mostly what I've seen are
complaints about sound cards being defaulted to mute, and Americans
complaining about problems with wireless modems. The problems seem to be
more common with upgrades. Clean installs seem to go much smoother.
