I have been using XP for long time. Now I find if I buy a new PC you have no choice of XP. You can only get Vista series. The most basic one is Vista Home Edition. Want to know -- suppose i install Vista Home, will it cause any known issue for my j2ee development ? For example, I need to use lot of open source libraries, application servers, IDE, etc, I know they are rpoved to work well with XP, will they have any problems in Vista Home Edition ?

Please share your knowledge on this.

I have vista home basic, both eclipse and netbeans are running with no trouble, also tomcat 5.5, postgresql 8.x, ant, maven, junit, and few other more. p.s. i also have ubuntu in the same pc and it's much better.

I have Vista Home Edition on my desktop computer at home, and I have not encountered any problems with Java software at all. It's safe.
