You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Windows Vista?

just recently upgraded to Windows XP from Windows ME as i figured Vista may be delayed and then have possible glitches as with any new release. Windows XP will be a supported platform for some time don't you think?

Re: Windows Vista?

Here's the official take on support lifecycle:
XP Pro - Mainstream support will end two years after the next version of this product is released. Extended support will end five years after mainstream support ends.

XP Home - Mainstream support will end two years after the next version of this product is released.

Hope this helps!

Adrian,
I looking forward to the release of Windows Vista. I decided to hold off
buying a new laptop until its release. I am looking forward to some new toys.
I am hoping some of my old software will run on it however.

Cheers,
Kate

I think you did the right thing - and now you've only got a few weeks to wait for Vista.

A lot of things are new in Vista but a lot stays the same - Overall I find it a lot more stable though and the security is much better.
