    Getting a new XP machine in at work for the accounting department on Sage's reccomendation. Apparently they are having minor problems with Vista.

    Not going to do well in the business market if Sage is recomending XP

    In what way is this different from the upgrade advisor app which has been out for like 2 years?

    As I am sure I have said before, Microsoft's own fingerprint reader doesn't work with 64 bit Vista. I am sure I will buy another MS OS though.

    Most things run fine, but some older games (read most) don't work, wanted to play the three Homeworld's as I have never got around to completing Cataclysm so haven't started Homeworld 2.

    When I get a new HDD I can free up some space on the main rig and dual boot with XP.

    No software is perfect 18 months after release. What's really appalling about this is that people aren't complaining that the software doesn't work, they're complaining that it has compatibility issues with certain programs and hardware. (The vast majority of which is also not compatible with OSX, incidentally)

    The one thing that really gets me is that Vista won't recognize my old XP partition on an older HDD. That's unreasonable.
