    Is in a transitional phase now where some old programs may work and some not. It depends on your application and the level of comfort. Would suggest you try dual booting to tie over this period, on the one hand you could still play your old games while on the other you could test out programs compatibility with the new Vista. I'm doing it right now and seeing more and more program fits into Vista. Until the day I find comfortable with Vista, then XP may be time to retire to join the old OS on the shelf. I did the same when I switch from windows 98 to XP, remember it didn't take long, couple of months perhaps, to lose an old flame.

    I tried to install the latest Winamp but it does not get installed in Vista 32bits.

    Also I think there is some faulty logic in the latest Window media player of the Vista. It doesn't play music smoothly.

    Well we have the same problem I am also choosing between xp and vista

    Well I guess not most since vista still have some bugs........ I'll wait for a service pack I guess

    Oh yeah some might work but will have problems;//

    There are alot of programs that are not compatible with vista. I have found that the majority of the older programs are not compatible with vista as well as alot of games are not compatible with vista.
