Vista and Windows7
Does anyone know what advantage Vista users and certified people will have
when Windows7 eventully reaches us? I have heard reports that it will be
'Vista but better' Anyone know any more about it? I am hoping that
mastering Vista will give me some advantage over my buddies and collegues
still living in XP world..... Fools the lot of them!!!! ;-)
BTW Vista is a very underated product and find myself having to defend it
constantly. Anyone else get the same?

Vista has a number of new features (perhaps too many, as it may have
impacted the efforts placed on the core), and a new interface. Regardless of
whether it's XP moving to Vista, or XP moving to Win7 -- those unfamiliar
will have a learning curve to learn the new interface, the new features, and
the new methodologies of use.
Somebody with Vista experience has already tackled those issues, and will
only be impacted by any new Vista-to-Win7 considerations, no doubt a much
shorter learning curve in any scenario.

I agree. While one may not want to use the product, as an ITPro we have an
obligation to our employer, our clients, and ourselves to be familiar with
the technology, even if we think it sucks. The really sad thing, though, is
the number of IT "professionals" who have never seen the product first-hand,
and merely parrot what the tech journals have written.

I don't find myself defending Vista, because I like to maintain a balanced
viewpoint. I don't generally recommend businesses invest in Vista, since
those things that would really justify the investment are only available in
the Business Enterprise edition, and my clients typically don't have volume
licensing agreements in place to take advantage of that edition. Nor would I
recommend installing Ultimate Edition just to get access to Bitlocker.
One of the most fatal flaws I think Microsoft made was not putting Bitlocker
in the standard Business Edition of Vista.
