I think this is valid tech content, and besides I have a short answer from Ahmed Alomari, formerly or Oracle, and now a key member of both Cybernoor.com and appsperf.com:
Vista is supported if you use the Sun native Plug-in. JInitiator can be made to work, but it is not officially certified. I am running 1.1.8 and 1.3 JInitiator on my Vista system and I can access EBiz systems without issue.
Refer to the URL http://blogs.oracle.com/schan/2007/11/08#a2210 for Vista (Ebiz) notes.
The only thing I would add is to check whether your client side has reached a release that is certified to no longer require jinitiator such that it will work correctly with the Sun native plug-in. I'm pretty sure that is covered in the schan blogs, but I'm not sure whether it is in the particular note Ahmed referenced.

Subject: Oracle e-Business Suite and Vista
Are there folks who are running Oracle EBS Applications with jinitiator on the Windows XP client and planning to migrate to Microsoft Vista OS? Can you please contact me offline? We are currently analyzing migration to Vista and finding out limitations from the Oracle side and would like to know how other Oracle customers are addressing these limitations.
