    Vista Incompatibility...instal Vista Transform Pack for XP and wait 1 year for
    Vista itself to get sorted properley with driver issues...

    I installed Vista the other day and...
    My Sempron Mobile PowerNow driver wouldnt work (leaving the fan 24/7)
    Nero wouldnt work
    My Anti-virus wouldnt work
    WinAVI wouldnt work
    and this is on an OFFICIAL RE-LEASE..!!!!

    The very next day I it and Re-Installed XP with Vista Transformation pack 6.0 and it
    honestly was better than vista itself (in terms of looks etc, sidebar, tooltip windows, these
    weren't on my Windows Vista)...the good thing about it (obviously) is that it was just XP re-skinned so everything worked on it.............

    Just like ALL Microsoft Windows Before, (even though they have been vigoursly tested)
    they ALL started out with issues......
    look at XP...the Blaster Worm etc.etc.. then updates & service packs..... (say no more)

    Wait another 6-12 months for millions of people to complain about thier issues and Microsoft
    to fix em with updates...by then there wil probs be a Service Pack....
    THEN get/install it..........(y) (y)

    I never understand why people need to rush and install the latest O/S assoon as it is released.

    The reason, as you can see, is above.

    I'd rather wait a minimum of 12 months before all the initial bugs are found, patches are released etc etc...

    Just seems too much of a headache, as well highlighted here if it all goes pear-shaped!
