What is the problem with Windows Vista?
Windows Vista's reputation as being subpar can be summed up with the following: * Issues recognizing older hardware, or otherwise known as "Plug 'n' Pray". * Compatibility issues with older software. * The number of services that run in the background. * User Account Control (UAC). Some of these issues are gradually improving as Windows releases updates. Software and hardware companies are also improving by releasing updated drivers and/or firmware for their products.

Is Windows XP Professional better than Windows Vista Home?
In short, Yes. You will get significantly better performance with XP Pro. Another issues with Vista can be compatibility with older software and device drivers. For example if you have an older printer, scanner, digital camera, etc., you may have problems getting it to work with Vista. Many of the compatibility issues have been remediated, but many still persist. Many of the same compatibility issues were propagated in Windows 7, but performance was improved. Overall XP Pro is still the best choice of the lot if you have a lot of older software that you don't want to buy new versions.

Is there any virtualization software that will play games i am running vista and have a compatibility issues and i want to virtualize XP?
An extremely limited number of games can use 3D acceleration in Parallels and Sun VirtualBox for DirectX and OpenGL, respectively. I would recommend that you first attempt to use Vista's compatibility mode options first, as you wil likely receive better compatibility and performance anyway. To adjust the compatibility options, right-click the application or shortcut, select "Properties", and click the "Compatibility" tab.
Asked in Computers
What is the difference forward and backward compatible in regard to computers?
Backwards compatibility ensures that your newly purchased item ie. A USB 2.0 3G Dongle can be plugged into an older pc system that may only support USB 1.0. This ideology applies to most hardware or software issues. Forward compatibility or future proofing is at best a guess or a guarantee that the tech will work with the next definite standard as for any far reaching guarantees, well remember betamax?
