    Windows Vista is now available for pre-sale on AMAZON.COM. Versions and pricing appear below. Availability: January 30, 2007.

    Questions:
    1. Do you think Windows Vista will really be available on January 30, 2007?
    2. What do you think about the pricing?
    3. Will you upgrade to Windows Vista?
    4. Will you upgrade your company to Windows Vista?

    My answers:
    1. Yes.
    2. LOVE that monopoly. BillG: Check out the AirBus A380 corporate jet. Cool!
    3. Yes, but only because I’ve got the machete.
    4. Not now. Maybe in 2008.

    What are your answers?

      Vista, ho hum

      In reply to Windows Vista is available for pre-sale on AMAZON.COM

      1 – Yes, probably, not that it matters much.
      2 – Price is about right, although expensive. But so was XP when it first came out.
      3 – I have to build a PCI-e system next spring anyway so I’ll probably just get Vista since I’ll have a new DX10 card anyway.
      4 – The company will probably move towards Vista in the second half of 2007.
