Hi, I have been using FX3.1 for (occasionally) updating my website. I am now using windows Vista on a new PC and the program doesn't work. Could anyone suggest a free or cheap program for managing websites?

"I am now using windows Vista on a new PC and the program doesn't work."
Another good reason for not using Vista! (Sorry)
I am not familiar with FX3.1. What does it do?

I use Dreamweaver and you can pick it up cheap on eBay.

It depends on whether you're a WYSIWYG guy, or a code guy.
If the former, I'd suggest NVU/Kompozer kompozer.net
There is a nice replacement for Notepad called Notepad++ link if you are used to coding by hand.

Also for the WYSIWYG crow and for free there is "Web Dwarf"
I am a direct code writer, but plyed with it and seemed pretty easy yet powerful. And you can not beat the price!

I've switched to Linux after XP
. heard to many horror stories about Vista.
NVU and Komposer are available for Linux too.

I wonder, if dreamweaver can do absolutely everything flash can do? I've always wanted to make a blog site that had books the readers can choose to read, with the whole thing looking like a bookshelf full of books. I've always thought it would be neat to be able to rearrange the books too as a user, instead of as a programmar. I do know that flash websites tend to be slower if not programmed right.
I've tried wysiwyg and I've always came out with a mess. I've also used templates and got even more of a mess. It forced me to learn to code by hand. LOL

Drop Vista – Get Linux ;)
Especially since you get all the cool web development apps free with a typical bootable DVD Linux distribution for example Ubuntu ;)
So don't delay and try it out – if you don't like it you can always go back to your previous operating 'system' just by ejecting the disc.
Good luck and have fun with your new OS :)

If you're using Vista you'll need the Professional version to get IIS web server for local building and testing.
I'm a .NET bod – so Windows OS is more than fine by me – but for development and testing of the website, it's hard to beat FireFox (especially with all the useful add-ons).
