    you will see the real side of Vista when you try to run your programs

    a lot of the programs that worked perfectly on XP don't work right in Vista
    Vista looks nice and all but if Office 2007 (made BY MICROSOFT) won't work right on Vista then it's not worth getting...................i mean how can OFFICE not work correctly on an OS made by the SAME COMPANY?

    Programs that don't work right in Vista (for me at least):
    Photoshop CS2
    Photoshop CS3 Extended (won't even install)
    FireFox (i have to install it whenever i want it to start up)
    Office Enterprise 2007 (Outlook and PowerPoint won't startup)
    Azureus
    jetAudio (all the settings keep resetting and sometimes won't start)

    i can't even watch my hamster porn without having to reinstall jetAudio

    <span style=\'color:#0588f8\'>I agree with you , it looks nice etc .. but really much programs don"t work .

    I don't know why your ff won't work good , it works perfect here .
    Office 2007 works also perfect here ;
    PS CS2 - Perfect
    PS CS3 - Perect

    Only I have now problem with installing Ulead cool 3D , for the rest is everything working ok ... at first I had a lot of problems , but once u fix them all works fine.

    but if you have xp , don't upgrade to vista , it rlly don't worth ...stick with xp even a year or more if u can
    it's better !

    Windows Vista, is one of the WORST Window Programs to come out right now, Give it a few years before all the bugs are worked out of it.

    the sad thing is it's not a program and a majority of the problems for it are caused by 3rd parties...


    office 07 not working in vista is just funny though M$ is truly full of ----.

    Yeah, I don't know what he is talking about. I have Vista Ultimate on my Desktop and I can run any program without incident... the biggest thing is:

    CANCEL
    or
    ALLOW

    Its really like the Mac commercial
