Thread: XP versus Vista

  1. #1
    Now that Vista is finally on its way (?) can anyone help me with the question.

    Will it work basically the same as XP, but with its fancy front end ?

    By that I mean

    1 Will most of the apps we all love and use run on it ?

    2 Will a lot of what we know about XP apply to Vista, eg I am making notes on start up files, processes and services etc, will most of these still be in Vista ?

    Kind Regards

    Digby

    Ive just installed vista rc 2 and it rocks . ALL of my stuff works , thats nero 7, newzleecher, my old hp officejet printer. Im gonna try some games in a mo too. Use trends pc cillin for the antivirus. The only peripherals that are not working is my webcam , and my old tv tuner card . Think i can live without those.
    Try it yourself , itl be good to reformat your system once in a while anyway.

    Aren't they going to implement DRM technology into Vista?

    i think we'll know as much of Vista as we knew of XP when we upgraded from 98.

    i was one of the last to upgrade to xp, did it 2 years after it was released. i was a 98-hardcore-tweaker by then

    i think i'll install vista by the end of 2009...

    Vista was a total new experience for me. Is fast it backward compatible with most of the software and hardware I use (problem with webcam also) and it just been a week. I m amazed every day and I hope it will stay like these. As for updating I will be doing it on the first day. Is been 5 years and I need a change.
