One can find many references out in the “blog world”, that indicate the rise of Windows 7.
Should that mean for Vista to exit the market earlier than anticipated?
Windows 7 is looking better and better as it gets closer to release. Many analysts state the obvious and tell businesses to move away from Vista and to directly go to Windows 7.
Remember Windows Me, which came on-line about a decade ago? Windows Vista appears to have similarities and turned out a “not so great” product, too. It was filled with problems and launched before it was ready. By the time Microsoft smoothed out most of the problems, Vista had already gotten a lasting reputation for being frustrating at times as well as slow.
A few businesses may want the option of buying Vista if they've invested in conversion and training, but most are still on XP for the majority of their users. Stopping the distribution of Vista just makes sense if Windows 7 really turns out to be as great a success as it seems to be heading for.
Said that, despite all the improvements made in Windows 7, it still requires additional expenditures for things like mal-ware protection.
Let’s see where this journey takes us.
I think that I will go straight for Windows 7, being still a strong proponent of XP – how about you?
