hi everyone....my first post here
im about to buy a new desktop pc and of course it will come with vista (premium) but it comes with a 60 day trial of MS works.....i dont really want to stump up even more money at the end of the 60 days and would like to do what i did to my XP laptop a few months ago when i had the same problem.....i have a genuine copy of Works.....2000 i think.......i just deleted the locked software and installed the older but perfectly usable version i had.....my question is will i be able to do that on a vista powered machine?......is XP software compatable with Vista?

thanks in advance for any help given
