\n. \n Windows \n. \nNo. Windows 9x is a term used to describe the DOS-based operating systems Windows 95 and Windows 98, similar versions of Microsoft Windows which were produced in the 1990s. Occasionally, Windows Me is also included in the term, as it is very similar in many respects.

Answer . I know for sure that Office XP (2002), Office 2003, and Office 2007 are compatible. As for earlier versions, I'm not sure, but there is no point in using Office 97 these days anyway. So whatever version you choose (as long as it is not prior to 2002, it will work.
Vista has a lot of cool stuff and a lot of even sweeter shortcuts for everything, but there are just too many bugs for some people.. Xp has proven itself, and with all of its updates and service packs, xp is arguably the best choice, regardless of the facelife that vista has, as vista has horrible …compatibility problems with practically everything.

Same as Windows XP, however you can't completely delete it, as files are in use.
If you have the RAM, I would assume vista since it would be more up to date, unfortunately a lot of people stick with XP due to the RAM issue.. XP was better; unfortunately it is no longer available with new machines - except for some low-end laptops. However, Microsoft have said that they will sti…ll support XP via Windows Update until 13 July 2010 (provided that Service Pack 2 is installed), by which time Windows 7, which will supersede Vista and will be launched later this year, will be shipping with new machines. Whether this in turn will be better than XP remains to be seen.. I got the news today that service will continue up to 2014 and that HP will install windows XP on their computers, optionnaly.. herebelow is the brief (from Tom's guide Hebdo, in French) : . Windows 7 ne tuera pas XP Le 07/04/2009 17h40, dans PC portables. Windows XP disparaitra-t-il un jour ? On dirait en tout cas qu'il repousse les limites de sa retraite puisque HP vient d'annoncer qu'il continuera Ã le proposer en option avec ses futures machines installÃ©es en Windows 7.Support prolongÃ© jusqu'en 2014 Lire la suite. I definitely would go with VISTA, it is faster, and easier. If your looking to buy a new PC, go with VISTA. Xp lags to much and can't run as many programs. There are two schools of thought on the matter. Some say that Windows XP is superior due to its speed, reliability, and it is still supported by Microsoft. Others say that Visa is better because it has more modern features, and future software will support Vista longer than XP. (MORE)
Insert the DVD. If a menu pops up with options, you can use it to restart and install Vista. If not, restart your computer. It will need to check to boot from DVD before hard drive.
Yes, you will need to buy an upgrade copy of Ultimate Edition to do so, or use Windows Anytime Upgrade available from the Microsoft website. Contact Microsoft if you need to know whether you can use upgrade in-place as you will be able to keep all of your files and folders this way.
Windows Vista (formerly codenamed Longhorn) is the next evolution of Windows. It offers an advancement in reliability, security, performance, and manageability over Windows XP. As of July 30, 2005, Windows Vista was in the beta 1 phase and was expected to be released in 2006. Windows Vista is a new …Operating system that was released in January of this year. I don't know what you want to know about it, so please tell me and I'll provide a better explanation of what you want to know. Some searching on Google (go to Wikipedia) will show you exactly what you need. That windows vista (MORE)
"Vista" is not only the Italian and Spanish word for "View" or "Sight", but is also the Portuguese word for it. "Vista" is also the feminine past participle of the verb "ver" (to see), in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. I will show examples in Portuguese: "Ela gosta de ser vista de vestido vermelho…" (She likes to be seen in a red dress). "Ele gosta de ser visto jogando futebol" (He likes to be seen playing soccer).

It is possible, in many cases, to install and run XP on a system that originally shipped with Windows Vista. Requirements: 1. About 2 hours to perform all necessary tasks. 2. A Windows XP CD. With valid key, of course. 3. Basic knowledge of partitioning. 4. Basic knowledge of (re)installing XP. 5.… Knowledge of what a "driver" is. Pre-install: 1.Before you attempt to install XP, backup any important files. Installing XP over Vista will necessitate formatting the hard drive. 2. You need to find drivers for all of your hardware. XP's driver collection was barely adequate in 2001, let alone today. A basic checklist of parts you need to find drivers for: A. Video card (NVIDIA, ATI, Intel, S3, Matrox, etc...) B. Sound card (Creative Labs, Intel, Realtek, etc...) C. Ethernet controller (Intel, Broadcom, Realtek, etc...) D. Wireless controller (Intel, Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) E. Motherboard chipset (Intel, Via, NVIDIA) You can find information in Vista's Device Manager, as well as on your computer manufacturer's site. The manufacturer may (or may not) also have XP drivers for the parts available. If they do not, try to find a specification list for your model, and work backwards from that. Install: 1. Restart your computer, and enter your BIOS. The key to enter your BIOS will probably be either Esc, F1, or Delete. 2. Check the "boot priority" and make sure that the CD / DVD-ROM drive is the first boot device. 3. If you have a SATA hard drive (most new computers do), find the setup for the SATA controller, and find an option to run it in "Legacy" or "IDE" mode. XP came out before SATA drives were produced, so it cannot use them without special drivers. Since XP does not have the drivers on the CD, you have to make the BIOS pretend the drives are actually IDE drives for now. 4. Save the changes and reboot. 5. Begin the Windows setup. This should be familiar to you. 6. Delete the current partition(s) on the hard drive, and tell it to format the drive with a new NTFS partition. A. If you get errors like "Windows setup could not find a hard drive on your system", you have not properly set the SATA controllers to run in legacy mode. Post-install: 1. After a basic XP installation is up and running, you will need to install the drivers. Install either the wireless or Ethernet driver first, depending on which method you use to connect to the internet. This is so you can A.) validate your Windows install, and B.) search for other drivers if you forgot one, or if you got the wrong one. 2. Install the other drivers. 3. Reboot your computer, and set your SATA controllers back to their normal mode. If you have installed the chipset driver correctly, XP should have no problems booting. It will also be slightly faster than leaving it in Legacy mode. 4. Reinstall your other software, as needed. Notes: You will likely not be able to use ay of the software that came with your Vista computer. Although most of it is likely garbage, it will also include a DVD decoder for your DVD drive. XP does not come with one. You'll have to either buy one, or use a free decoder like the one that comes with VLC. (MORE)
All the platforms of Vista are on the DVD (or 5 CD's). You have to have the Home Premium serial to unlock the features. Why do that though when an Ultimate serial would do so much nicer. :)
In my opinion, no it is not, the Beta expires on August 2009, the RC expires on July, 2010, however, if you plan to purchase Windows 7, I highly recommend upgrade as Windows 7 has passed several benchmarks showing that it is faster and performs better than it's predecessors.
Windows 7 doesn't really compare to Windows Vista. However, Windows 7 is way better than Windows Vista, because it doesn't have any bugs, viruses, malware, spyware, etc. and it is much, much faster.
I would say Windows 7. Normally i would say it's what suits you but in this case, know for a fact that Windows 7 is much less frustrating than Vista. It doesn't crash (as much), its much faster, better UI, comes with more updated preloaded software. Its just better in total. Believe me. Google it … Most of the compatibility issues are easier to solve and believe me its more compatible than vista can ever be. And I think... it uses the less system resources when compare to the windows Vista by..Rags :) Ehem... NO it is windows vista. All the way, windows 7 is more complicated and windows vista has been my life. (MORE)
Windows explorer is the process which allows you to view your desktop, icons, browse folders. You can find it by opening task manager and locate explorer.exe
Windows XP is better. Vista is a better at running games, but it is slower and more problematic than XP
Windows 7 has surpassed Windows Vista as well as XP in various benchmarks. See related links.
When you put the Vista Install CD in, it will offer an upgradeoption; however, Vista is outdated. You should upgrade to Windows 7if you can purchase it. Just like Vista, it is the same process.Put the Windows Install CD in, it will offer an upgrade option, andyou will be able to upgrade your Windows…. Most users, however,discourage performing an upgrade installation and encourage a cleaninstall. A clean install ensures that nothing will go wrong withyour installed copy of windows and you can keep your mind at ease.If you upgrade your existing copy, you will be transferring overfiles that might not work or cause the system to fail.

depends on the computer there is a vist upgrade advisor on the Microsoft webpage here is the webpage: http://www.Microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx and that will tell you if your computer is capable of whatever OS of vista you can run
Windows Vista is an operating system, not an application. It does not run "on" Windows 7 so it cannot be said to be "compatible" with it. Drivers and applications written for Windows Vista will continue to work on Windows 7. The reverse may not necessarily be true. Vista and 7 use the same kern…el, so there shouldn't be anything that doesn't work on 7 that works on Vista, but compatibility mode should fix most problems you would have. (MORE)
If you select 'Upgrade', it only replaces system files, keeping your personal data/files/downloads. It is probably recommended to install a clean copy, though.
Yes, you can. You have to get software which is called "Windows Blinds". It allows to use themes from different operating systems (including MAC) with XP.
It depends on your computer hardware and the service pack you have installed with Windows Vista. Try running Windows 7 Upgrade adviser (see link in 'Related links' further down the page.) Yes, but make sure your PC meets these requirements: . 1 GHz processor (32- or 64-bit) . 1 GB of RAM (32-bit);… 2 GB of RAM (64-bit) . 16 GB of available disk space (32-bit); 20 GB of available disk space (64-bit) . DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver (MORE)
No. Windows 7 is based upon Windows Vista but includes newfeatures, bug fixes, and performance enhancements.
They are "compatible" in the sense that many applications that run on Windows XP will run on Windows Vista.
what do you mean from windows vista x64 to windows vista? they are both the same thing. there is win32 and win64. so i don't know what you mean by that
I don't think you can. You must back up your computer, wipe it and install XP, then restore your files. -But how do you install XP?
The real question is can you hardware handle an upgrade. I wouldcheck the Vista hardware requirements and make sure your PC is upto the challenge.
Of course, backup all your files to an external hard drive andperform a clean install with your Vista disk. They only make iteasy to upgrade never downgrade. If you do not have an externalhard drive, create a disk partition to use as your file backup.
There is no rollback way to do it. You would need to reinstall XP fresh over the Vista install. Why do you want to do that anyway, is Vista not working for you?
Generally, Windows 7 is faster than Windows Vista. This is partly through a process of analysis of code to look for bottlenecks between Vista and 7 and improved memory management of screen Windows in 7.
IF your thinking about other type of window software(e.g. 7 xp etc) than you go to www.microsoft.com and go to products and see what you want
Windows Vista Ready means that the PC does not have Windows Vistaon it, but it can be easily upgraded for an additional price. Ifyou buy a PC with Vista, you will get Vista already installed forno extra money.
what in gods name would posses you to commit such an act of stupidity!?! If you must you will need to boot the PC with a Vista install disk in the DVD drive, make sure CD/DVD drive is listed above HDD in BIOS and boot from CD. When the setup runs you will be able to format the HDD and install Vista …fresh - caution formating the HDD will erase ALL data inc. programs, files etc. (MORE)
Well in short it takes less memory(RAM) to run it, and in my own opinion, it is a lot better looking and faster.
Windows Vista is an awful piece of software. It's slow and hadnumerous development problems. Microsoft did a terrible job... (Igot a Mac Book because I was so mad) Windows 7 is a greatimprovement! It runs more like a real Windows computer should! Soin conclusion, Vista = garbage and Windows 7 = The …God of Microsoftoperating systems. (MORE)
There are many new additions to Windows 7, including: -Jumplists -Built-in ISO burner -Customization of Notification Area -XP Mode (Not just compatibility view) -Improved touch/touchscreen capability -Record steps of your problem to send to someone with the "Problem Steps Recorder" -Magnifier -Bet…ter MP3 Previewing -Action Center -Abillity to pin whatever you want to the taskbar -Improved Taskbar Previews (Better previews of your open windows in your taskbar) -Snapping windows into place -"Homegroup" (Makes it much easier to network things over multiple PCs, it is now simple for someone to pick their files to share over their Windows network) (MORE)
your computer might not be powerful enough to run vista. but to be honest i hate vista, get windows 7. Are there any applications running?
Yes, you can update by going to Microsoft's website. I highly recommend doing so. Windows 7 is much, much better than Windows Vista. You can update cheaper then buying Windows 7 full.
Every Windows Distribution is writen in binary non Open Source files. By the way, there are different versions of Windows Vista: Windows Vista 64-bit and Windows Vista 32-bit. Windows Vista 64-bit or x64 can work with 64-bit AMD Processors.
You can upgrade to from older versions of Windows to the latestlike XP to Vista but installed programs will probably be removedand need to be reinstalled, and you need to be careful about thestored information on your computer. P.S. Windows 7 is newer and thus recommended instead of Vista incase yo…u already did not know. (MORE)
You can, but you have to format the computer, and you need Windows Vista Approved CD. Also, Remember to backup the computer first to any drive, for example Portable Drives which has 500GBs.
yes i have reinstalled al types of windows on my PC although i would stay with indows 7 it's way better!
Vista has a Sidebar feature that allows you to see variously running apps on your desktop.
first you need to buy the windows 7 upgrade, which is about 300 or so dollars. then, you open it. it has instructions on how to install from there. To find windows 7, search "Windows 7 upgrade" on Google.

Windows Vista was technically the replacement for Windows Xp. However, it was so unpopular that many users simply waited for the release of Windows 7 to upgrade.
