I have HP laptop with Genuine Windows Vista OS. I like this OS, which is more user-friendly than Windows Xp.
But Windows Vista is not supporting 'Microsoft Visual Studio 6' development. When I am installing most of the software, setup will alert about compatibility issues - no solutions online! Some tools can be installed in Windows Vista. But on run, it will show Registry errors. So If I am right, the registry structure of Vista is entirely different from that of Windows Xp.
I heard a lot of good comments about Windows 7. I would like to know, whether the issues I mentioned about with Windows Vista is solved in Windows 7 or not?
In other words,
Will Windows 7 support all softwares that Windows Xp supports ?
Windows 7 have the same compatibility as Windows Xp ?
If YES only, I will think about upgrading to Windows 7.
