A friendo of mine told me so, but i'm not sure... So i'm asking on a more reliable source [yah right]

Anyways

True?

For me it works absolutely terrible. But then again, so does everything else on vista. I can't open or print anything anymore without having to restart my computer and doing it over.

Depends on which vista OS, your compatibility and your own settings.
Vista Premium with 1 - 4 GBs of ram should do.

I'm in university and while I didn't want to fork out an extra 100$ for Office 2007, I know many people who did and it works amazing on their Vistas. Vista gets a bad rap, mostly because it was released too early and had major issues early on. Now though, Vista works well for the most part.

I seriously doubt this is because of Vista.

I'm sure it's not but I've tried everything and nothing works. It's just easy to blame it.

I've never had a problem with either Windows Vista or Office 2007.

Well don't blame it. It's not because of Vista that your computer is ****ed. Maybe Microsoft's though.

OpenOffice.

Costs 100% less than M$ Office.

I got Office 2003 for free and legally, so that's not a problem for me. But, yeah, OpenOffice is MS Office without the baggage.

baggage = Microsoft taking your money

What could possibly be the problem then? Office 2007 worked perfectly fine on our old XP computer until it fried, but as soon as I installed it on the new Vista computer it went to complete **** and decided it was going to lock up anytime I wanted to open/print anything. I even get error messages when I try to open the task manager so I have to reboot everything.

I don't know, but I've never heard of this happening with anyone else, so I doubt this is a Vista problem.

EDIT: Have you ever asked a tech expert? I'm sure they can help.

Never had a problem.

I also seriously doubt that a program released a year after Vista, by the same company that made vista, and which has now been out for vista for almost 2 years, would have compatibility issues left over.

No I haven't but I google'd the error message that it gave me and I found another board with a bunch of people having the same problem. The mods there said that it was Vista and there wasn't a known fix for it so I dunno. I might call someone to see if I can fix it.

That bit about the forum is surprising. Still, it would be a good idea to call an expert. Hope you get your computer fixed.

Vista get's so much shi* and for a more than decent OS, it really doesn't deserve half the shi* it gets. My first time using Vista was about a month ago and from my exprerience I'd have a hard time believing they ever had problems. As for Word I have no idea. Open Office FTW!
