5.0 out of 5 stars Windows Vista Business 32-bit 25 Feb 2012
It is simple to install and seems pretty robust. Of course, like all software of this nature, it will never please everybody but for me it is more than adequate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Close to uselsss. 12 Nov 2007
This operating system is so bugged that it's close to useless. You'll find 9 out of 10 programs not working; games - don't even bother! There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to install this to replace your XP system - XP is tested, working great and full of support files; Vista reduces your hardware to half its potential all in the name of looks. If you just want to start up your PC and watch the desktop for hours, this is the system for you. Don't try and run anything on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stick to XP 30 Jun 2007
I have recently bought a new Sony laptop that came with Vista preloaded. I was looking forward to using the much hyped new operating system and my initial impression was that Vista looks nice and has some interesting new features. Then things stared to go wrong...

I will give you an example...I am the administrator of my laptop...or so I thought! I had to copy across a series of databasefiles from one directory to another and it appeared that I was able to do this. However, on further examination it appeared that Vista thought otherwise. I had one file - let's call it a.mdb - that I made a copy of - to a_1.mdb. I then deleted all the data on a.mdb and saved it. I then deleted it. All seemed to be working fine. Then I renamed a_1.mdb (this contained my original data) to a.mdb and, amazingly, all my data disappeared.

I am a software developer so I know what I am doing. It would appear that the file system on Vista is totally different and Vista intervenes if it thinks you are doing something that you should not be doing.

I am in the process of reformatting my laptop and will be installing good old XP Service Release 2.

So, avoid Vista until they fix some pretty major bugs. Isn't this always the case with our "friends" from Seattle?

4.0 out of 5 stars Its got the looks! 20 May 2007
By DB
Given that two versions ago Windows seemed only capable of handling a few different colours, Windows Vista offers thousands of colours. Although XP had a nice colour scheme, it was not much at all. Windows Vista looks smart and colourful, DO NOT install on a computer that cannot run Aero, or install Home Basic, without Aero Vistas whole look is lost completely, before getting Vista I though Aero was cool, but who cares? Now using Vista reguarly I feel that Aero is in fact one of the fundemental features of Vista, without it Vista looses some of its advantage.

While Defender coming installed by default helps to reassure, the constant messages "Are you sure you want to do this", "A program wants to run, Cancel or Allow". For a user who lacks confidence with computers, even running basic applications can through up security warnings, unless of course they are M$ apps!

The big problem is compatibility, the first major blow to me was when I discovered Juice doesn't work with Vista, a nightmare. While I had been using XP Juice had become invaluable to me and now to lose it is a real pain, there is some complicated way to get it to work, but I just want it to work from one install. A second problem I sometimes have is FireFox, while relatively new to FF myself, it does seem to have several problems (one scapegoat is of course Add-Ons, of which I have several) but I think the main fault is Vistas. Then there is IIS which comes with Vista, it is a nightmare to get to work with PHP, although most people won't use it, I do (or would like to) but I can't!

The sidebar is cool, but on the whole rather useless as I never use it. But in future I hope to gain more from the gadgets.
