I currently have a copy of xp home in French. I was wondering if I would be able to upgrade to vista english. Could there be compatibility problems here?

Thanks
David

That's a really good question. I never even thought of that as being a problem.

Anyway, I searched Google and it appears that it can't be done, even though one post said that only Vista Ultimate has that feature. The rest say that it will give you and error message and a clean install is needed.

Yes, it was good thinking. You can buy a complete version of Vista but it's probably a fortune. I never thought of Vista as an upgrade anyway.

Some people are talking about running Server 2008 as a desktop machine to avoid problems with Vista.
