Hey Everyone,
I am thinking of upgrading to Windows 7 but I wanted to see if you guys have had any problems with the upgrade - in terms of the Wiimotes not functioning.
Do you recommend upgrading or is it a good idea to stay with Vista?

As for wiimotes functioning, it all depends on what your doing and what software you want to run.  Which software will you be running?

I am not running anyone else's software. I have just created a small program that stores acceleration values.
My question mostly was that would the Bluetooth dongles and Wiiimote compatibility still exist in W7.
Thanks a lot dice!

You'll find many USB BT Radios that required Bluesoleil or Widcomm with XP or Vista will work with load Windows BT instead.
