I have modified my XP pro with "Vista Transformation Pack 6.0.exe"

The results are excellent and have no side effects.
As a precaution I suggest you make an Image of the Active partition first.

As a requirement you need to show your winz card to download it.

I feel so much better i got a legitimate copy of Vista Ultimate... Thank's PC World magazine :)

So much better than the old... ummm... illegal? copy i was using... or the transformation pack running on XP.

In all honesty, I have no idea what some people complain about with Vista... I think it's great.

I agree with Evil - and likewise thanks to PC World we're running Ultimate.

(Except it no longer lets me watch recorded TV via our router using our XP PC which I used to when the Vista PC was running XP Professional can't get past Vista security)

But that is just Microsoft's attempt at giving you a "better" "safer" user "experience"....:p

Kiwimum - I think there must be a way to allow your router to get past the Vista security. Make a new thread here, I'm sure a techie will be able to help you.

And I agree with Evil and Kiwimum. I love Vista, and thanks to MS for giving them away, and creating Vista, Also thanks to PCW NZ, of course! :D

Wow... I'm not alone ;) I spend a LOT of time reading Digg articles and was starting to think I was the only person on earth that actually enjoys Vista.
