    OK I've installed Vista and I like the interface. I've had a few windows
    products from win 3.1, 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, XP home prem, Xp media centre
    now Vista premium.
    When can I expect programs from other software companies to get up to date -
    Real arcade, Activision, etc etc.
    I use my PC as a family PC but so many of my bought software doesn't work
    that it has become a wordprocessor, internet browser and TV. I want my
    programs to work or at least be able to download a patch to make them work. I
    wouldn't mind even buying a new vista version of an XP program.
    I assume that microsoft does have a technology exchange with software
    companies. When can I expect a flood of Vista compatible software so that I
    can assign my XP software to the bin, or am I going to have to re - install
    XP media centre - partition my hardrive - install Vista again and choose
    which Op sys. I would like to use?

    What you are asking is roughly akin to asking when will broadcast TV
    stations get up to speed with digital high definition TV. The answer to
    both questions is, "at the last possible moment".

    No one wants to reduce this quarter's bottom line for something that
    probably won't boost revenue for another two or three quarters. They
    may even decide not to patch current versions and then make the next
    version Vista compatible. That way, they squeeze the price of an
    upgrade out of you.

    There is a common misconception that the main purpose of software
    companies is to produce great software. Their primary purpose is to
    make money.
