Is integrated video compatible with Windows Vista?

Windows Vista's new "Aero" interface will require more horsepower than many business computers can provide. For years, cheaper mass-market PCs have used built-in (integrated) video to lower costs, however, most likely these PCs will not be able to use the new Aero interface. That does not mean Windows Vista will not work! In fact Vista can run without the new interface, but users will have to forgo Aero features like transparency, live icons, and the 3D program switcher, Flip 3D.
