I have yet to run into a problem with backwards compatibility, even running FF7. As far as I know, there have been no issues with backwards compatibility with either Vista or XP. If there is, I'm quite sure that there'll be an update fairly soon to fix that.

that's encouraging news! have an extensive library of games and programs so i hope they run smooth with the new o.s. i have ff8 but not ff7 sure brings back memories of the playstation. good times.....
