You could download "Picasa" it's free and use it in place ofFZ supplied software. It will work just as good....
As previous posters have pointed out, the FZ18 software probably will work with Vista or you can find free/inexpensive sofware that will. I can't say for sure because I use Windows XP. However, I should point out that I have bought 4 panasonic cameras in the last few years, including the FZ18 for a family member, and I never use the utilities supplied with the camera. There might be something on the supplied disk that I don't know about, but I haven't had a need for it so far..
I don't know what software the Panasonic has that isn't compatible, possibly the transfer software and/or driver. Pick up a card reader ($10-$15) to transfer the images - it'll work with any OS newer than Win98 with no special drivers required. Any decent photo editing software is compatible with Vista - I'm using Photoshop CS on 64-bit Vista..
To answer your question, yes, of course it works with Vista...
The use of a card reader has been discussed on Dpreview many times. I think it is safe to say the majority of people suggest a card reader be used for any camera..
With that said, let me add that you should format your card in the camera only. A card reader provides the option of having your pc format the card - don't do it..

To answer your question, yes, of course it works with Vista..
In addition to it working, you don't even need any additional software. Just plug your camera into the computer and Vista will download the images for you and display them...

Yes, of course you're right. I generally don't mention this because the method of download is the subject..
