I am thinking of acquiring Windows Vista Business edition. However, I don't know whether CAT-tools, speech-recognitions tools (Dragon v9), scan-programs,... will work with Vista.
Do anybody have any experience with Vista?
And no, I am not going to change to Linux-based tools.

Trados Feb 14, 2007

The new Trados FL should work (2007), according to their website. Wordfast should also work (as long as MS Word can run...).

I would recommend people to wait, since hardware problems seem to be a issue as well, even when the Upgrade Advisor says "go".

I would rather wait... Feb 14, 2007

Everytime a new Windows version is released, we seem to be faced with the same problem. You never know which application will actually work smoothly (or not) with the new OS. And new software versions are usually released a few weeks (or months) later.

In general I think that moving to a new OS version implies also moving to a new software version to ensure compatibility and minimize the chances of crashes, bugs and the like.

Personally, I always wait one year to switch to a new Windows version (once they solve the initial major bugs) and then acquire eventually all software upgrades I need.
