Microsoft Vista - this operating system came with my new computer. The minute I saw it I knew it was going to take some time getting used to it. However, once I got used to it I still did not care for some of the features so I googled “how to make Vista look like Microsoft XP”. This showed me websites that allow me to tweak Microsoft Vista to look like Microsoft XP.

A lot of people say they cannot get old programs to work with Microsoft Vista. However, the only problem I had was with Dragon Naturally Speaking and they offered a new version to go with Microsoft Vista free of charge. Even my decade old printer works with Microsoft Vista.

There were also concerns about Microsoft Vista inability to wake up after going into the sleep mode so when I got Microsoft Vista on my new computer I simply turned off the sleep mode immediately. Now it goes to shut down stage after 15 minutes but one move of the mouse brings it back to life.

If you're going to use Microsoft Vista on any computer it's going to need at least two or three gb ram. I got three gb ram to be safe. Microsoft Vista will take a while to get used to but pretty it probably will be the only operating system Microsoft offers and it's not as bad as one would think.
