yes Vista is compatible with Windows Live Messenger..

In my personal opinion I'd wait at least a year before upgrading to Windows Vista, and even then I prob wouldnt even bother.

Just have to think is spending all that money really worth it?

How old is your computer? If oldish, then why not let your computer die out and save up for a new brand spanking new one one that will work just lovely with vista, and will be compatible with old parts from your old pc?

Ofcourse Vista runs Windows Live Messenger, as many other programs, especially the 32 bits version.

Vista is quite pleasent to use, I find it worth every penny.

By the way, can you tell us your computer specifications? Thanks :)

The Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft will tell you if your PC is compatible

What is required to run Windows Vista?

If you purchased a PC in the last two years, chances are good that you can run Windows Vista. To install and run the core functionality of Windows Vista, you need:

    * An 800 MHz processor
    * 512 MB of RAM
    * A 20 GB hard drive with 15 GB of free space

Amen. Is it worth $$$ to you? Buying Vista means less money for other things, so you've got to make sure it's worth your while to upgrade.
was put impeccably into words at DebianDay for me last Saturday, by Knut Yrvin of Trolltech - adults try something once, fail, and then are like "ffs this doesn't work". Children try, fail, and then try again, and succeed - maybe on the second, or even fifth retry. But the thing is that they keep at it and overcome the problems in the end.

Just wait to get Vista.  In about a year or so, the majority of the kinks and incompatibilities will be worked out.  Don't you guys remember when XP first released?  Everyone said that it was crap, don't get it, nothing works with it.  Basically, the same things that are wrong with Vista right now.  Have some patience, it'll get better (hopefully).

:-/ nothing works with it?, what are you on?, the only things that dont work are dodgy games and some badly coded programs
