Texas State University and Microsoft Windows Vista
Source: Texas State University
After five years of development and some high-profile delays, Microsoft launched their latest operating system, Windows Vista, to businesses and universities in December 2006. On Tuesday, January 30th, 2007, Microsoft released Windows Vista for purchase to the general public. There are some considerations to account for before one adopts and deploys this operating system into your department. While there are many advantages to Windows Vista, the intent of this paper is to make one aware of the potential issues affecting the Texas State community. The Hardware requirements for Windows Vista are considerably greater than for previous versions of Windows. Moreover, the advertised requirements for the operating system produce less than satisfactory performance.
