I’m trying to keep track of download locations for Vista-compatible drivers for common hardware types in a single location. To that end, I’ve set up the Vista Master Driver List page. The rules are as follows:
1. Only primary download locations (official sites run by hardware maker) are allowed. I don’t trust or recommend third-party sites that allow direct downloads of drivers.
2. Whenever possible, I’m linking to the information page or the search page rather than the driver file itself. Linking to the file runs the risk that you’ll grab the wrong driver, miss an update or a readme file, or bypass other important information that might be on the info page.
Suggestions and comments welcome. If you’re searching for a particular driver, let me know and I’ll track it down and add it to the list.

Great idea, Ed, and a nice start to the list. Have no doubt that I have added it to Windows Vista Bookmarks and will update Connected to Vista Bookmarks too.
HP site worked well for me for HP Officejet 6310 All-in-One.
The lack of drivers is indeed a big problem.
Our readers voted the lack of drivers and the application incompatibility issues as the two main problems they had to deal with.
Unfortunately, after 6 months things are not too great. There are companies that did not even release beta drivers.
