      I work at a large manufacturing company, the corporation decided to roll out vista on all their new computers. The manufacturing line has been down for over 2 weeks now. I would seriously wait on a while before rolling out vista.

        Lie – Lie – Lie – Lie

        This would never happen as you could just reinstall what you had before.

        What about your testing – this would have shown the problems up.

        This is a Lie 100%

          I agree 2 weeks of downtime is a kill for any organisation. It looks like proper planning and testing hasnt been done for sure.

          However, can i know what the problem was? which led to such a huge downtime?

      Go for it mate you wont get many if any problems with compatibility with your servers if they are on server 2003. Everything worked fine with us. The only issue you might have it with your antivirus!

          you may want to change your TR profile to enable others to send you messages. This is safer than posting your e-mail address in the clear, since the sender doesn’t know your address until you reply to him.

      not really

      no real issues to speak of. Now that’s not to say there isn’t any issues with applications. Many applications and devices that worked with XP don’t work with Vista.Mostly devices with drivers that aren’t supported by Vista. Printers come to mind. roxio and nero might not work. Nero 7 does with exceptions. The newest version of Roxio does but not older versions. stuff like that.

      If it was me, I’d put a workstation on the network and see before rolling out Vista to everyone.
