WILL WINDOWS VISTA RULE?Locked
A Qualitative Report Card by 3 MVP’s.
IMPACT OF VISTA.
Globally speaking, well, inspite of Microsofts efforts, there has been confusion on certain fronts. The first being “Why Vista” ! Why should I upgrade ? ……
HAS VISTA MET EXPECTATIONS ?
Well, Yes and No ! WDDM and Aero are the primary VISIBLE features in Vista which cannot be exported to Vista. The new kernel IS good. Vista is great on security, file-handing, stability, & ease of networking fronts ! Its got some new cool features too ! However many other features can be used in XP by using other 3rd party applications. And while the world is waiting for Vista to become the next leading OS, all this smoke about Windows7!
HAS VISTA REALLY INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY OVER XP?
If yes fine. If not is such an expenditure justified against Vista’s benefits… Especially, in face of the fact that by 2010 a brand new Windows7 will be launched ? Is this expense wholly justified against Vista’s benefits? I am inclined to think so. Security, Stability and File handling has really improved in Vista…
FUTURE OF VISTA.
Windows being the dominant OS platform worldwide, Vista will rule, if not for anything, than the sheer fact that people are familiar with Windows and for any new platform to replace window, people will have to first unlearn before learning again, and that is easier said than done. That is why also maybe Microsoft wants more and more to get hitched onto their bandwagon…piracy be damned ! Open source is there, and it has been there for quite some time, System builders are including Linux OS for quite a some time now, but still we don’t see any boom on Desktop uses using Linux. Mac?…well, too busy catering to their niche 5% market share !
