Two weeks with Vista

The IT powers that be are ordering our new computers with Vista. And lacking a compelling argument against it, I’m now using a shiny new laptop running Windows Vista Business.

With two weeks of usage under by belt, I have to say “eh”. I haven’t found anything compelling for Vista over XP. While Vista starts up much faster, it shuts down much slower to make up for it. [And yes, I have looked at advanced settings on the Control Panel Performance for advice].

While I wouldn’t advise running away from Vista, I wouldn’t advise rushing to embrace it either. My advice would be to stall and hope that XP wins another reprieve.
