4 star(s) vista taught well

By Hyla Verified Buyer from West Allis, WI on 4/25/2009

Primary Use: Personal
Describe Yourself: Quality Oriented

I teach computer usage at a senior center. As you might realize new computers come with Vista. The computers at this senior center are XP. XP and Vista are quite different. This program enables me to teach vista without needing to bring in a lap top. Students have been pleased with learning how to deal with their home computers.
