All of the Windows Vista Features

They're Windows Vista Features

Windows Vista is the "next generation" operating system from Microsoft, well that's what they say. The "WOW" starts now is their new tagline, so does it really? I am going to review the new and rather expensive offering from the biggest computing company in the world. Microsoft say that they are...

So, Windows Vista is out, and so is the much hyped Ultimate edition, but in the UK we are being expected to pay up to £350 for the pleasure of using it, so is it worth it? Well I had the good fortune to be involved with the Windows Vista Beta, and so have seen the product grow into what you see...

So, here we are again. We just got used to Windows XP. We live with the knowledge that almost everything that we install on our PC's works straight from the word go, and we like it like that. Or then again, maybe not. Every day there is the new security patch. The interface is dull, we are bored...

Looks slick, great new innovations

A little slow, some unneccesary services

This release candidate of Vista Ultimate is a good indication of what we might expect in the final release. I have been following the releases of Windows Vista Ultimate since the initial beta offering and have focussed on the 32 bit editions as they are more compatible with current hardware and...

“Is It Worth It .... YES!”

published 08/03/2007

Quick, Good Looks, New Programs

Compatability with old components

From the outset, I'd like to make it clear that my experience with Vista has come from running two of the beta (pre-release) versions since June of last year, so any comments I make may not necessarily apply to the final version you can buy now, though it should be very similar. I should be...
