Hi Lora,
Smile. Well, Windows Vista is a completely different case. As I have mentioned on list several times before Microsoft is doing quite a lot of house cleaning on Windows Vista, removing older technology support, and as a result a lot of software you own may not work on Vista. Microsoft is also introducing a lot of new technologies that is probably the way of the future for Windows users. For example, alot of gamers here aren't too happy to buy a Windows Vista system and discover that several VB 6 libraries to run their favorite accessible game is missing. They have to understand that fundimentally to a programmer Visual Basic 6 anything is very very old technology. Those Visual Basic 6 dll files were released in 1998 for Windows 95/Windows 98 era computers. From a software development point of view those dll files are 10 years old, and are extremely ancient. Microsoft has began removing them so that Visual Basic developers will begin porting their VB 6 apps to VB .NET which is fully supported on Vista. As a result it is likely going to be a while before a lot of companies, especially small accessible game developers, get updated to the Vista platform and standards.

I agree that it's generally a good thing, but you just never know anymore.
After all, I've heard that things that work with XP no longer work with
Vista.

I'll be glad to see my Pacmate.  It feels like it has taken forever, but
they've actually been very quick about returning it, I'm just impatient.
Hopefully I'll have it before New Year's Eve.

Hi,
As far as I know it should. The Omni has newer software than the Pacmate,
and generally that is a good thing in the software business.

Hi, Ken,

I just sent in my Pacmate to upgrade it to an Omni. Will this still play on the Omni? And once I get the Pacmate back, would you be willing to help me get started? This sounds like something I'd enjoy

Thanks.
