The hidden costs of upgrading to vista!

March 5, 2007 2:15pm CST
i think the industry is going to quickly become aware of the excessive costs of convrtingto vista when thousands of businesses try to use programs intergral to their operations-- and can't. their obvious choice will be to stick with xp. There's only one comment I have in regard to Vists: "what are they thinking?"

Woow WIndows Vista.. what a hot subject i can say. I have talked a lot in my area with many of my friends and all of them had only positive thoughts about it. I can say that i was blow off by this new windows system. Some things certainly lack to it but this new look which Microsoft has incorporated in it certainly do the money you would give for it. I have waited this new system for 2 weeks and here i am using it. It was pretty hard for me to buy it because in my area it can't be found. So i had to ask a friend from another part of my country to order me. I am so happy using it and all i have are only words of gratitdue. I post here a short description about VISTA. Windows Vista contains hundreds of new features; some of the most significant include an updated graphical user interface (GUI) and visual style dubbed Windows Aero, improved searching features, new multimedia creation tools such as Windows DVD Maker, and completely redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista also aims to increase the level of communication between machines on a home network using peer-to-peer technology, making it easier to share files and digital media between computers and devices. For developers, Vista includes version 3.0 of the .NET Framework out of the box. The .Net Framework makes it significantly easier for developers to write high-quality applications than with the traditional Windows API.

Microsoft rules the market, they are just finding a new way to screw over consumers. Soon there will be video cards, games, and other items that will only work on Vista and people will be forced to upgrade.
