I’m not sure if I’ll ever run VISTA in this decade… I haven’t even played with the beta’s… I recommend to friends and family to keep their Windows XP disk around.
Why? There are so many reasons, but maybe one of the biggies might be coming to an end…
Ed Bott of ZD Net is reporting that Service Pack 1 (SP1) of VISTA next year will not include the “kill switch”. You knew this one right? If you do not activate VISTA in time, some functionality stops working… this gets more interesting if you’re not connected to the ‘net or experience a glitch.
I don’t know how much more evidence one might need to conclude that Microsoft’s latest operating system is not really hitting it’s mark, regardless of the hype otherwise.
