It has been a dark couple of years for Microsoft in the desktop operating systems business. The uncontested leader in that market for close to two decades, the company sullied its reputationn with the delivery of Windows Vista, which proved a crashing disappointment from the moment it stumbled out of the starting blocks. Despite expensive marketing campaigns and the sermons preached by top Microsoft executives about its advantages, IT shops clung to Windows XP.
But with the first betas of Vista’s successor, Windows 7, trickling out in late December, new hope has risen. Given what appears to be an OS with vastly improved speed and performance, support for a greater number of devices, smoother installation and a sexier interface.
However ppl have different opinions such as:
Vista was not that bad while others say that ppl easily get pleased by Microsoft.
Whats your opinion?
