I did my best to keep XP for my new computer. I had just installled a Vista Computer for my parents, and while I didn't have any trouble with the set-up, I see it makes you upgrade (BUY NEW VERSIONS) of just about any major software that you may have held on the XP that is several years old.
The software makers just did not patch up old versions to a certain point for Vista. So be very careful of older versions of programs and check this out before you buy so that you will be prepared to purchase upgrades to the latest versions if neccessary (because the programs wil not work period). It is just a scam that Microsoft and the software vendors perpetrated on people to pay more for programs already purchased.
As it turned out, XP is available (at least on DELL) but the models available (or the extra price they were charging) just did not make sense for my use, so I got a VISTA machine.
I have had it up and running for a few weeks now with these poker rooms:
All of the rooms open up zero problem, except everytime it opens Carbon it makes me take an extra step of clicking ALLOW this program to open
