Please don't try to run Windows Vista on out-of-date hardware. Also, don't try to run Windows Vista on hardware not certified by Microsoft.
I presume that's tongue-in-cheek! This is an OS we're talking about... a system which by definition should be resource-light, unobtrusive and free up as many resources for the actual software applications as is possible. One of the main purposes of an OS is to provide a uniform interface to software so that individual applications don't need to know about the wealth of hardware configurations possible - if we should only use 'Microsoft Certified Hardware' then the OS isn't doing a very good job at all.
I think those experiencing hangups with Vista may actually be having hardware issues
Isn't that the wrong way around? Seems to me it should be 'those experiencing hangups with Vista may be having Vista problems because it fails to provide good hardware support' - consumer grade hardware failing to work well under Vista is Vista's failing and not the consumer's.
Please don't try to use your XYZ brand printer on a computer more than six months old. Also, please don't try to run your XYZ brand printer on a computer which is not certified by XYZ.
