Dear CNET members,
TGIF! Just in case you missed my note from last week, the format of this newsletter's Q&A section has changed a bit. You will notice two things that are different. First, the most helpful answer to the member's question for each week will be determined by you, the community. While I have gone through all the answers provided for Art's questions on software compatibility with Windows Vista, I've selected a few members' answers for you to vote on via poll. The second thing that is different is the way you submit answers for each week's question: rather than e-mailing the answers, you will submit it directly to a forum thread. That's it.
Thank you all for your contributions this week. Please don't get discouraged that your answer was not selected--the bottom line--as well as the purpose of this newsletter--is that we are all here to help and learn from one another. Your contribution, no matter how small or big, is invaluable and equally appreciated by all of us--right, folks? So check out the selected answers and get your votes in. We have a lot of advice and opinions from our members about moving to Vista. If you have any additional advice or suggestions, please join us in the forum thread to continue this week's topic. Have a great weekend, everyone!
(By the way, each week I have a few readers e-mailing me to tell me that, when clicking on the forum links, they receive a "page not found" error message. While we are still looking into this issue, a solution that has been successful for the people I've e-mailed is to delete their browser cookies. Give it a try and see if that resolves it. Thanks!)
Member Question of the Week
Here's a question I have yet to see discussed anywhere. While
there is a lot of discussion of the question, "Is your PC
ready for Vista?", nowhere have I seen a discussion of
whether your SOFTWARE is ready for Vista. In past upgrades I
remember seeing many examples of software incompatibility
moving from one version of Windows to the next. How can I
tell if I will have any software incompatibility issues if I
upgrade to Vista?

Check out next week's question:
My digital tape camcorder broke months ago, and I'm so confused about replacing it. Is it a mistake to buy HD tape when they are so expensive now? Will mini tapes disappear in the next few years? I understand the quality and ability to edit is best using tapes, or am I wrong? I'm not interested in a hard drive camcorder. Would you recommend DVD or tape camcorder? What are the pros and cons of both? Please help me. Thank you!
We feature a new question every Friday, and if you have the answer for our member, you can submit it above. If your submission is picked by our members as the most helpful answer, you'll receive a free CNET Learning CD of your choice.
