The simple answer is, do you NEED Vista? is it something you ABSOLUTELY
must have? If not, return to XP......
No, I don't need Vista, in fact I can't see any reason for installing it.
But I do work with people who buy new machines and need to use them for
what they do (audio work mainly), so I need to know what the situation is.
Any real work here is done on XP (or W98!).
Because most of the apps won't run on anything but Windows, other OS's are
not yet an option, so the fact that it is becoming nearly impossible to
buy straight XP Pro on a machine anymore means that someone has to try
this. Everyone I know in audio has been scared off Vista by the drm
implications, so I am running out of places to ask.
All I really want to know is whether anyone can play back audio properly
in Vista. If anyone can, and especially if they are using a similar video
driver, that would be very useful to know. I need a proper test. My son
uses Vista at the other end of the country. It was only when I said to him
that I had audio glitches that he rang me back and said that he had them
too. He hadn't noticed on the music he usually plays (an oldie speaks!).
Yep mine works fine, I've got a Dell D820 running Vista Business and I use
Sony Sound Forge for Music creating, editing and sampling and its perfectly
fine, I also use Music Match Juke box for playing mp3s but for this I do
have to run the programme in xp compatability mode but it still works fine
