had a flock of green cheek conures squawk out:
>If I can give my 2 cents about Vista, to get the best deal, buy a new
>computer/laptop with Vista on it, since the price alone of the upper
>versions of the OS is ridiculous considering it has compatibility issues
>with a great number of software titles (at this time). This was a problem
>with XP as well and it can literally stop you in your tracks if you run a
>business or do a lot of work from home. Luckily, some versions of Vista
>come with complete multimedia solutions like DVD making/burning, which I
>will have to convert the CoCo TV project to soon. Vista and Nero don't mix
>at this point unless you upgrade Nero for a cost.
>So far, the IDEs that I use for all of my development work well under Vista
>with no changes required.
