i got XP at the moment with zune theme and google desktop with windows vista background looks almost as good as vista anywho with my new setup im pretty much gonna have to get vista 64 so... hope the drivers are mature by now :S
driver and application compatability stop me from going Vista
I know this is not a Vista thread, but let me say that the earlier shortcomings of Vista, (which are now very few), are far outweighed by the outstanding performance.
I rarely encounter this situation with a program being incompatible with Vista and usually when I do it's a 3rd party situation. Yes, more and more software is being updated to work with Vista 32 and 64.
Remember, it's not that Speed Fan doesn't work... It is only missing a feature, or so it appears.
Oh, and remember all the dire warnings about upgrading from Win98 to XP? It's those same people again.
I don't get it. The man asked a question, I'm having the exact same problem, and there's a whole line of responses but not one seriously implementable suggestion amongst them. Thanks, guys, for wasting my valuable time searching for a solution by quite predictably filling my LCD with yet another ubiquitous and tiresome series of gripes about vista and the same old run of the mill "switch to xp" joke, repeated over and over as though it were still funny. Hell, it wasn't even funny the first time someone said it, now some comic genius robotically types the exact same phrase in EVERY single independent forum when someone asks a Vista-related question as though it were original cute.
It's about as original as saying "guzunteit" when someone sneezes, and contains a similar amount of comic potential. Since, therefore, it is therefore a complete waste of time for the typist and fills up valuable netspace, and will in the future induce scorn from the likes of me, I posit that one might want to seriously consider whether or not it is a worthwhile enterprise to type this in the future.
I deeply hope that someone has a macro key with the sentence: "One answer: switch to xp" programmed into their gaming keyborad. Otherwise, the potential for the participants in forums like this to have an original thought is in serious question.
