Windows 8 Finally Overtakes Vista, No Longer a Microsoft..

    Dual boot -Win8 and Vista


    I was using Vista until a couple of weeks ago when my motherboard died. I now have a new computer with Windows 8 64 bit. Have almost completed restoring my old programmes but the main casualty for me seems to be my trusty Nikon LS. 2000 film scanner and its SCSI board. These worked fine with Vista32bit mode. Would it be possible to reload Vista in 32 bit mode and have the SCSI board work for the scanner and have as a dual boot? I would probably only use Vista when wishing to scan.
    Thanks for any info. available

    While I am not going anywhere near the Win8 bandwagon in the foreseeable future, I find it amusing that H8ER's are so quick to point out that Vistas LIFETIME share is so low, while Win8 (still being less than a year old) is already exceeding it (barely).

    Reality Check? Granted, it's numbers may be directly linked to its prevalence in tablet's and other such "touch" device's, but how may new PC's still have their OEM Win8 on it? How many Win8 PC's that were sold found their way back to the retailer within 30 days?

    I think that if you polled ownership over time against device type installed on, the numbers would be fairly educational.

    Hah.... just ordered a 17" laptop... comes with 8 installed. Of course, my very first action will be to install classic shell, but it will still count as a "sale" of win 8....
