    You could install xp if you really wanted to

    But the problem with that is that most things like the new halo 2 for pc are going to be made to run on vista only. Obviously we will get round that and run it on xp.

    As for limewire on vista i am not sure about that but i would imagine it will work on vista.

    You will definitely be able to burn dvds thats the basic use for a pc nowadays lol

    :D

    limewire will work on vista, I am currently running vista home Premium and limewire works just great. You may have to change the destination path other than that works just as normal.

    You may also have to "allow" limewire through some of vista's new security crap before it will DL at normal speeds.

    You're assuming that the game will run on just DirectX 9 files....if it requires DX10....well, you get the point.
