Windows 7: Experienced users required on sister site Vistax64!

I am a Vista fan and keep dropping in. But I hate those threads that come from the outside because they are so messy - plus often those people are not polite. And many questions seem to be about Windows mail which I never used. I used AOL since day1 and did never did regret it - I have yet to encounter the first problem.

I made mine using Gimp a long time ago. It's not that hard to find tutorials online.

I just hope some of the VF mods can see this:

I think I accidentally double posted on VF just now.

I joined the VF, and tried to post in Chillout. When the post didn't appear there, I posted the same again. This time I saw a warning that the post is first published when mods have approved it.

So please, ignore one of those two.


EDIT: some other Finn (I believe) had already taken username Kari, so I am KariP there.

With 7 out, there's no reason to use Vista.

There are probably as many users still running Vista as there are XP!

I have two apps that won't run on x64. I have no x86 Seven's, I mean I have the DVD's so I could install one but all my licences are used. However, I have some valid Vista licences so I'm using Vista virtual machine to be able to use these x86 apps, without need to buy one more Seven just because of these apps.

For me, no free Seven licences was and is a reason enough to use Vista.

I should have been more specific. There's no reason other than compatibility. If you don't mind me asking, which apps?

They are both 'self made' accounting and billing apps we use, coded by our own C# guru. For some odd reason he's not able to make them to work on x64 Windows, not even on a 64-bit machine running x86 Windows. Virtual PC's emulated hardware is 32-bit, as is my virtual Vista, and the apps run OK.

The situation is going to change though, we have an ongoing project to integrate our office apps better. The situation now is like in an old Finnish proverb: ' The shoemaker's family has the worst shoes', a small IT consulting company has the worst possible apps for own use.
