NSIT has issued an advisory concerning Microsoft Office 2007 and Windows Vista. Salient points:
- Office 2007 for Windows has a default “save” format that is incompatible with earlier versions of Office and with Office for Mac.
- If you are ordering a new machine, NSIT recommends purchasing it with Windows XP, instead of Vista.
- NSIT will also not be fully supporting Windows Vista before 2008.
