NOC: Episode 1 Issues with Vista

We get questions all the time, asking us what are these issues with Vista, should they downgrade to XP. Should they upgrade to Vista, is Vista compatible with their software and hardware?

The quick and low down is that we just have'nt seen many issues at all with Vista. Almost all the issues we have seen have been due to simple things that take little to no effort to fix. People trying to run old programs without updating them or installing a patch can have issues, but for the most part won't. Some pieces of hardware do not come with Vista drivers, but they are available from the company's website as a free download. Finally the most common issue is people running VERY out of date software on Vista that barely ran under Windows XP. Fortunately Vista is tolerant of alot of programs, and if you run it in compatibility mode, and as Administrator the programs will run fine 99% of the time.

So are these issues with Vista? or is it that Vista is actually preventing issues with the computer?

Well here are the real issues that we have seen in video format for easier viewing.
