I can't believe windows created something thats not fully backwards compatible with older software. Do they want to loose money?

Most of all the older software compatible with Vista, but there are some exclusions, for ex. WinRAR and Nero (<7.7.x.x versions)

Are you kidding? Where were you during the XP transition? Almost everybody had stuff incompatible with it.

Maybe he meant it as a joke I remember these times (unfortunately), I had tons of incompatibilities...

And i hated XP just as much during that time. Seriously how hard is it to create to separate runtimes rather then moulding a new one.

They still make updates for MS-DOS?!
Since January 2005, I've been in the Operating Systems Prototype Community. I've enjoyed learning more these past four years about the development of the Windows and Macintosh operating systems, as well as learning of new user-based projects that optimize system performance.
