I have been testing Vista since it was in its beta stages and have come to the conclusion that even though it is more resource intensive than any of their previous O/S, it is still worth it. I think MS probably could have done away with some of the bells in whistles but all in it's a pretty stable O/S. I think Vista is definately ready for general home user use, however, from a Windows Administration standpoint, vista is lacking heavily on the admin tools needed to successfully run a corporate environment. In order to get the exchange server and server 2003 admin pak to run, I had to manually register dll's and perform a flat file copy from an existing 2003 server. When is M$ going to get the admin tools ready to run and what are the odds of the admin pak being stable?
