After a long wait, over six years, Microsoft’s newest release, Vista, is now available to the public. The January 2007 release of Vista will replace Microsoft Windows XP. Windows XP was released in 2001 and quickly became very popular with PC owners. This program is still very reputable and many PC owners do not want to replace this program with the newly created Vista. If you are someone that is filled with trepidation at the idea of leaving Window XP behind, you are definitely not alone.
The Decision To Upgrade to Vista Could Be A Costly One
There is a considerable amount of discussion as to whether or not a person should upgrade their computer to the new operating system. While Vista has many innovative features and a fancy new screen, it also has a high price tag and required hardware that requires many to upgrade more than just their operating system.
The general consensus is that a person would be wise to wait at least six months or more to allow other individuals to work out the “operating bugs” that always present themselves when a new operating system is introduced to the mass markets of home PC users.
New PC Users Have Multiple Choices If They Act Fast
If you are currently shopping for a new PC, and wonder whether it would be a good idea to buy a computer that already has Vista installed, you might consider another alternative. If you purchase a PC that is loaded with Windows XP but comes with coupons to get the Vista upgrades, you will actually get two programs for the price of one. In this situation, you can enjoy the Windows XP programs until others have had a chance to work out any problems with the Vista programs.
