The only reason I know so far to justify Vista ;-P
Also there are utilities that supposedly lets you redo the games:
There are more games on later versions of Windows than on earlier
versions and there are supposedly unsolvable games.
Believe it or not there is a wiki on it:
Out of the Microsoft Windows games, there are believed to be 8 which are
unsolvable. They are games No. 11,982, No. 146,692, No. 186,216, No.
455,889, No. 495,505, No. 512,118, No. 517,776, and No. 781,948. This
conclusion was arrived at by the consensus of several authors of
FreeCell solvers. The solvers of both Danny A. Jones and Gary D.
Campbell have been run through the first million FreeCell games and have
found solutions to all but these eight.
