More Vista Tips, Hacks and Tutorials

Vista Application Compatibility Resources

I haven't encountered many applications so far that wouldn't run on Vista.

That said, every time I install a new application on our Vista machine, I run Process Explorer so I can keep an eye on its memory and CPU utilization rates for a while. I did have one program (still beta) that ate up my CPU cycles, but overall have been pleased with the application compatibility I have found porting my XP tools, applications and utilities over to the Vista machine.

You've been informed.
