    Our system currently runs on Windows XP but we are considering purchasing a
    printer that runs on Vista. Is the printer compatiable to our Windows XP
    operating system?

    So far as I know all printers that are Vista compatible will work with Windows
    XP. All you need to do is look at the specs for the printer you are
    considering, they will tell you which operating systems are supported.

    I am using windows vista home premium. I have connected my old printer
    which I used with windows xp. It is a HP DeskJet 940c. I was told by HP it
    was NOT compatible, with Vista but it works fine. I did not install any
    drivers. Vista found them for me. Give your old printer a try.
    Hope this helps

  4. If it runs on Vista, it will have XP drivers as well.

    Stay as you are with winXP. Better the devil you know. If it aint bust
    don't fix it. Far better than Vista!

  6. If the folks who write DIVX would update their software ALL my PCs (bar the
    Server 2003) would be running Vista. Just because a few people are having
    problems, doesn't mean avoid it. Millions are not having problems.

    Grab the latest XviD codec and use your media player of choice, you
    don't need DivX's bloatware.
