    Surprise 1: The most popular burning program Nero is incompatible with Windows Vista, no matter version 6 or the latest v7.0.

    Surprise 2: The disc burning application integrated in Windows Vista goes crazy.

    Surprise 3: Thank God! For Microsoft programers 2-hours merely means about 5 min.

    PS: It takes Microsoft N years to develope Winsows Vista. Actually, it is only 365*N*2.5 min. If they really spend N years on it, Windows Vista could be far more better.

    Oh, that can't be true. If it were, Vista would have been finished years ago and long ahead of schedule! ;)

    What's so hard to understand? Points 2 and 3 merely stating that Vista has a flawed algorithm for determing the time left for the burn to complete...

    I understood. Pity the GUI is so ugly. Semi-transparent windows? I'm not after that in an OS. Clean, sharp, obvious.

    I installed Nero Lite on RC2, and it works perfectly.

    Yeah, and besides, Win Vista isn't even out yet, so it's not really a flaw for a program to be incompatible with an unofficially released product.


    I really don't know what the OP is going on about.

    Surprise 4: Windows Vista is pre-release software.

    Surprise 5: Sometimes applications need to be updated to work with a new OS.
