Although I would LOVE to see version 4 I think it should wait until it is compatible with Vista, as I have a new laptop, which says that when the Vista update is available I will get it free. We shall see, I have heard that story before. My computer magazines have horror stories from people who cannot get their FAVORITE programs to work in it although they should. Since Microsoft is going to drop support for XP sooner than they usually do, I really want something that will work when I have to go to Vista (grumbling all the way). Is there a Mac version of RootsMagic, I have thought seriously about switching, but don't because of all the programs that I have that do not work with Macs. Jo Blunk
I CAN THINK OF 2 EXAMPLES WHY RM IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH VISTA. 1. YOU CAN'T USE YOUR DICTIONARY. OPEN THE RM DICTIONARY FILE, YOU'LL SEE A BLANK PAGE. TRY TO ADD A WORD TO YOUR RM DICT., NO CAN DO WITH RM OR ANY OTHER PROGRAM.
2. WHEN VISTA OR GOOGLE IS INDEXING IN THE BACKGROUND, I'VE HAD RM CRASH, ALL DATA DISAPPEARS WHEN PERFORMING CERTAIN TASKS, ESPECIALLY CUT AND PASTE. OH YEAH IF I RESTART RM AND CLICK HOME PERSON IT'S INTACT BUT MY HEART IS STILL POUNDING AT THE THOUGHT OF LOSING 28 YRS OF RESEARCH. I LIKE VISTA BECAUSE I CAN SEARCH ANY WORD, PHRASE ON THE PC BUT IF IT WOULD SEARCH RM I'D BE ELATED.
