Microsoft Goofed with Windows Vista

Posted in authored by John Gohde tagged , , , , , at 6:59 pm by John Gohde


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.

John H. Gohde says: If it is not broken, then do not fix it.

    • This appears to be the original source of this article which was critical of my position. This criticism proves that anybody can write anything and make it sound convincing on the Internet. As I had written in my majority viewpoint: “Even Microsoft itself has accepted the fact that Windows Vista failed in the market place.” This is a fact which I have supported with a link to another article. Readers are invited to search the Web and make their own decisions.

      Every operating system has its strong points. If you think that your job is to buy into every operating system that Microsoft puts out on the market then you are going to make Gates even more wealthier than he already is.

      Windows XP is the gold standard of personal computer operating systems that is going to be around for a very long time to come. Thank goodness! Microsoft goofed with Windows XP because it was frankly too good. There is a reason for this.
