Microsoft Vista

In the past i have been very vocal against Microsoft Operating-System(OS) due to the several reasons like security lapses, frequent crashes, etc... I did use Linux for some time at home, but when my parents had to use the system then i had to switch to Windows b'coz it's easier for them to use, I feel that is major edge which Windows has over Linux.

Even though there is Graphical User Interface(GUI) in many of the present flavors of Linux, it's still takes sometime to unlearn some concepts from windows and learn things on Linux. It's easier for a technol guy to pick up things within couple of hours, but it ain't that simple with people who aren't aware of using different application softwares. So this where Micorsoft wins the battle of OS's in personal computing when it comes to desktops or notebooks. After the release of XP from Microsfot i have started liking them, because they have fixed some of the major glitches which were found in the previous OSs.

Next year Microsoft is coming out with a new OS called Windows Vista. Click for more on the vision, platform and philosophy.
