I hope that will be an incentive for companies to update their drivers and software for Vista level compatibility. If you're having trouble with some hardware and/or software on Vista today then Windows 7 won't help anything.

Dang it! Had enough trouble getting XP 64 to run Homesite4... guess the gift that keeps on giving will continue to give... ARRRRGGGH!

I run the 64-bit Vista Business version on one machine, and the lack of 64-bit hardware drivers has been the biggest issue I've faced. I run a VMware virtual machine with 32-bit XP in it to work around this. An old scanner and several printers in my office simply don't have the drivers.
64-bit XP must be a real joy...

It works... everything I really need does... it was just my tried and true HTML editor that gave me a real pain in the fundament, for a time. Still acts balky on occasion but eventually works. I'll miss it when and if...
But wait! There's a caveat! I do things in leaps and bounds but take a LONG TIME between leaps. I ran NT Server 4 from 1996 to 2006. Replaced that machine (which had the gall to DIE on me) with better iron and XP Pro. Ran that two years. A biz deal came through with a tad of spare cash and upgraded systems (a bit ahead of schedule, see above) to 64bit architecture. So far I'm liking it, though a tad ticked that some of my older legacy programs won't run. PS5 does (I'm a cheap ... er... fellow).
Looking at the "planned obsolescence" M$ and other players use I can see a world of hurt in my future. Arrrgggh again!

If you like that you might want to check out Nick Bradbury's TopStyle as an editor. He made the original HomeSite. It works just fine on Vista.

I thank you for the heads up! I will be investigating!
