I would second Brian's opinion that as far as the Windows VISTA interface is 
concerned JAWS works perfectly well out of the box in the control panels and 
associated tools.  I would also however like to add that you can use Office 
2003 quite safely with Windows VISTA as an alternative.

I realise that the ribbon may be a bold step in interface design and that 
eventually we'll all have to get to grips with it, but I know that since this 
is much more a productivity tool than Windows itself you may want to go with 
the familiar if you are not some major power user or at least have the choice.  
I also have come accross the odd sighted person who has difficulties with the 
ribbon although they are probably in the minority perhaps.
