I assure you that it IS the case. I have Vista running on my laptop with the latest AnyDVD & Nero Suite and all is well.
Plus, that is a pretty big blanket statement to say, "NERO does not in fact work for VISTA". What "facts" do you state? Your own experience? A few forum postings? That makes you judge the industrialized world cannot use Vista with Nero?!
It is more likely as I posted above as did tahclep that it is a conflict with Nero and some Vista based drivers (or lack thereof) and NOT a total software conflict with the entire Vista OS as you have stated as "fact". This is just a repeat of the WinXP rollout. There will be some compatablility issues no doubt but not a total imcompatability as you've posted. The words "for me" would have been a needed addition to your statement.
Using your logic, I can say that I know for a FACT that Nero DOES WORK with Vista as I am successfully running it!
