    Windows Vista is the new Microsoft operating system that has not come out yet. Your computer currently has Microsoft XP, but when Vista comes out, your computer will be able to run it, if you do choose to buy Vista.

    Windows Vista is a upgrade program thats after Windows XP (like how XP is an upgrade from Windows 2000, and etc). Its in beta mode right now, so it hasn't offically come out just yet. I'm pretty sure you don't have Vista.

    Your computer is just saying thats its capable of the Windows Vista upgrade. Hope this helps!

    No.. you do not.. Vista will not come out until January.. It just means that when Vista comes out.. and with YOUR computer, you can UPGRADE to Vista if you want...(NOTE: I would think twice... or three times before I upgraded to Vista)

    No, vista is still in beta mode, due to be released soon. Don't get it till the bugs are ironed out.

    It just means your computer is compatable to use vista.

    Not necessarily. Just means that you can have it.

    Watch your system when it boots up.. It will tell you what OS youre running
