Windows Vista has been out in the market for several months now and the dust has had time to settle. I’d love to hear what you think of it. Have you deployed some production systems yet? Have you purchased a new PC @ home? Which areas of Windows Vista do you find the biggest improvement over Windows XP?
I appreciate that corporate deployment of any technology is typically way more complicated than simply receiving the media and installing it. Concerns over application compatibility, driver support and the need for integration testing often mean that there’s a considerable delay in deployment. Reviewing the improvements and deciding how / if they’ll help you to make your business more effective are important considerations before committing to a large scale deployment.
