    I was considering purchasing DDS but it seems this version has been out for a long time and based on the time between reviews of older versions I get the impression we are about due for a new version (perhaps overhauled to provide better Vista support). Anyone have the inside scoop?

    Acronis has hinted at a new build of DD/OSS, but they never give a date or even an estimate.

    Good question.

    I bought DD solely to dual boot XP with OEM Vista pre-installed. Then I find that it doesn't work with OEM Vista. Then, as MudCrab noted, I learn Acronis has already developed the solution to this problem but hasn't released the build that incorporates it. This is not a small group. I bet >half of the Vista installation are OEM. I would also bet that a big chunk of those who buy DD do so to dual boot. Come on Acronis, pull the trigger and release the new build.

    I couldn't agree more !

    Same reason to buy, same problem with HP vista, waiting here with a brand new laptop.

    I posted a support question on this issue on their web site earlier today. No reply yet.
