Yes, I'm computer stupid.

My laptop runs vista. Can I play older games that have XP listed as the last requirement?

Some...

Most...

It really depends on the game. I would imagine you would have little problem with most new-ish (last 5 years) games.

You should be OK but Vista has had some odd issues with certain things. Look it up on google.

Yeah, I just installed vista on my new pc and had a few troubles running BF2. Had to run it as administrator and then it worked.

I believe Vista has a compatibility mode as well for some older games.

I've got a real old mahjong that I liked to play (dos based) that doesn't work. I was dismayed.
