I am planning to install Vista on my home PC. While I am really excited about it, I keep hearing about “little problems” that people are having and it is making me nervous. My friend Jeff had a post on his blog about the problem he had – he couldn’t hook up his Cannon Powershot camera to his computer because there were no drivers for Vista. He found a work around for the time being and it is no big deal. But it makes me wonder, if I have a bunch of these little problems, will it all add up to be a big problem for me?
An actual “large” concern of mine is that I occasionally support an app created with Visual Studio 2003. I have no plans to convert this application to work with 2005. But Vista doesn’t support VS2003. Again, I can work around this by setting up a Virtual PC with Windows XP and VS2003 but you know that is a pain.
Stay tuned, when I install Vista I’ll be blogging about the experience. Hopefully the features will out-way the issues!
