In the case of Vista, our criticisms are warranted, as they come directly from
you, the loyal Redmond Report reader. With nearly all Microsoft tools, as badly
as they begin, they almost always end up smelling like roses. And Vista -- as
folks get used to it and Microsoft adds some fixes -- will start to smell better
Our latest report indicates that Vista opinions are very
much a mixed bag. There are plenty of pundits that don't like it one bit.
Research, however, shows that enterprises are slowly getting into swing. SP1
is coming, high-powered hardware is getting cheaper every day, and many users
are learning about Vista through their new systems. And most everyone agrees
that when it comes to security, Vista is clearly better.
The real answer comes from college students, the future of our country and
the ones that will ultimately decide Redmond's fate. My daughter Lauren, an
XP user, says that many of her college classmates use Vista because it came
with the computers their parents just bought them. They don't all like it, and
struggle sometimes to figure it out, but the darn thing does seem to work.
