Microsoft Goofed with Windows Vista
A very good reason not to buy a new computer is that you are likely to get stuck with the Windows Vista operating system. Even Microsoft itself has accepted the fact that Windows Vista failed in the market place. Commercial businesses wisely did not buy into Vista.
My advice is to accept only Windows XP installed on your next computer purchase. Microsoft has been using the sales strategy of offering a new operating system every three to five years. It was not long before commercial businesses grew tired of upgrading so often. Businesses simply never bought into Vista. And, saw no economic justification to upgrade to a lot more bloated and slower Vista when Windows XP was working just fine.
Furthermore, a lot of existing software currently being used by businesses simply wont work on the Vista operating system.
In 2008, there were 1.1 billion plus personal computers in usage, worldwide . Seventy percent of them were using the Windows XP operating system. Windows XP is the most widely installed operating system of all time. And, there is good reason for this.
Microsoft Windows XP provided IT departments major incentives for businesses to upgrade to it. Windows XP succeeded in uniting the best parts of the Windows 9x and Windows NT operating systems together. Windows XP is stable. Service pack 2 (SP2) and up, also, offers excellent security features.
