most proprietaries install unless 64 bit is asked for.
Just that some new MS rules about drivers has created lots of problems. Vendors don't like having to pay MS to certify their drivers to allow them to install on Vista.
Lots of reading to do in this forum alone. I would wait until at least service pack 1 gets relesed.
...Pardon the intrusion here,...
I have no problem running old programs on XP. As a matter of fact, I can now do things with some of these programs that I could never do on my older computers. I am quite pleased with the way XP can handle 16-bit opcode.
My question is this:
Can I expect this same friendly compatibility with Vista?? If so, I won't hesitate to buy a new computer. If not, then I think you can guess where I'd tell Microsoft to stick each and every one of those 64, much touted, Vista bits(and double that if they ever go to 128!).
Any comments would be appreciated.
