Yeah, it's a disaster! As an ISP my phone is already ringing off the hook
about it. Software won't run, printers are fubar etc.
I'm telling my customers to NOT put vista on for at least a year. And even
then who knows.
If you need a new computer I've found out that the Dell BUSINESS division
will sell you a machine with XP instead of Vista.
If you insist on Vista there are a few things you need to know. First and
foremost, there are 6 (six) versions of it. Depending on your machine you
may get versions with less stuff. To run the full blown Vista well, I'm
told that you need at least 2 gigs of memory, a duo core processor and an
above (far above?) average video card. A large hard drive will probably not
hurt at all either.
I read an article that said for every dollar you spend on Vista you can
expect to spend $18 more on other software. Your printer probably won't
work etc. I've heard total cost of ownership figures as high as $200 to one
(vista is about a $300 program). With all of the new software, training,
On the up side, Vista is looking like the greatest thing to happen to Apple
or Linux in this century :-).
