Windows Vista - will you buy it?

March 31, 2007 11:30am CST
The 'wow' experience may have started, but are you really up for windows vista, the new Operating system from Microsoft? Despite the rumoured bugs in the software, it apparently looks really good. But have MS focused too much on the looks and not enough on the security? What do you think of the new operating system? Will you or won't you buy it? What's your view?

It is just another way for Microsoft to make more money off us all. I think it is too soon to even consider getting Vista. I have read too many complaints about all the bugs that are there. I mean any new program has bugs and it takes time to get them all out, this is where people come in, microsoft needs people to try it, find the bugs, report them and then they need to fix the bugs. Well this is that stage where people are reporting all the bugs. If I ever switch to Vista, it will be much later after all this had been modified and it's working properly.

NO, I won't. It is pricy and I think a bit unreasonable. I am contented with whatever operating system I have at this time.

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. I haven't bought it i have a version from the 'black' market
