It will work but there are issues

by aksaunders In reply to windows 2003 vs. vista

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. I installed Office 2003 which is supposed to be compatible with Vista. My computer crashes all the time. I called Dell and they told me that there is acompatability issue between the two. Microsoft's website says that 2003 will work but 2007 is certified to work. So I guess if you can deal with the occasional black screen and potential loss of data, 2003 will work.

I am using that configuration

by Alpha-Male In reply to windows 2003 vs. vista

I have Office 2003 installed with Vista Ultimate on my HP Laptop. I have not noticed any issues and the software seems to work quickly and reliably.

I plan on using this same combination on my primary workstation when I upgrade it sometime in the next few weeks.

Good luck!
