My software all installed without any problems, including Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, PC-Cillin 2007, Fidelity Active Trader Pro, Sony Picture Browser with AVCHD Player, and of course iTunes.
Vista is just simply gorgeous when compared to XP. I was a hardcore Apple fan since 1979, having used the Apple //e, Mac SE, Mac IIci, and original Apple PowerBook 20 MB HD. Since I haven't used Apple's OS extensively since the System 7.1 days of the 90's, I can't compare it to the current Apple OS Leopard. I have heard that Vista has taken (i.e. stolen) a lot from Apple's OS X. In any case, Vista is just simply beautiful when compared to XP. It's quite obvious that the graphics for even the windows are rendered with my graphic's card's 3D engine.Read more ›
price not to bad.
In the end this WIndows version does have some redeemable qualities (IIS 7 is a blast) and I imagine that there are some home built custom PCs and some DElls and HPs (both of which I have also supported VISTA Driver Issues on for commercial clients) that don't remind one of the first release of Windows 95 or Windows ME (lots of Blue Screens and Lock ups), but by comparison to XP Pro edition, which was almost completely stable and played really well with others from release 1, this release of Windows is Not Ready for Prime Time and I do not recomend it, especially for custom PC builders using OEM Hardware and Software and for beginning users.

Install SP1 and you'll be happy. Not with it if you already have XP though.Published on November 10, 2008 by W. Ziemer
Installed this as a second OS on a MacBook Pro - runs perfectly. Everyone likes to knock Vista - but, bottom line, given a well equipped machine - Vista is way ahead of XP. Read morePublished on July 6, 2008 by J. Chalmers
