Windows Vista has been out for over a year now. If an operating system is going to make any head-way in the IT industry it needs to happen soon after the release. While there is a slim chance the OS could a late bloomer that is pretty unlikely given it current state. So much so that people will buy Vista only to install XP after the fact (see link below). In a few recent articles Windows XP is still outselling Windows Vista.

Vista is one of those operating systems where people aren’t totally sure where they want to fall or what side they want to be on. On the one hand I truly believe that people are ready for and want a new operating system but on the other hand they see too many people and companies who have been burned by the Windows Vista OS. Most people are still in the wait-and-see state which isn’t good for this OS because it is ends up giving it a bad name. What have you found in your workplace?
