The Vista Story

SJC SJC Profile: SJC

During the height of my recent upset with Vista, and a visit to my chiropractor, I discovered an article in the October issue of MaximumPC about what went wrong with Vista’s launch — I found it to be very interesting and thought I’d share the link with you.  The on-line article, “What Went Wrong With Vista” can be read here.

It seems that there has been an expectation that Vista will see a service pack 2 in the coming months before Windows 7 is released — it would be nice if it managed to fix the recurring issue I’ve had with the infamous infinite loop problem reoccuring.  Also in my exploring I noticed a recent article on Windows 7 that some may find an interesting read – link to it from here.  Apparently one person thinks “This time Microsoft gets it right”.  Interesting.

One might wonder why in a blog on Custom Application Development that I would be writing about Windows so often, but the answer is simple — it seems that we just can’t get away from it.  As a custom developer it is always necessary to keep aware of the latest and greatest — even if it isn’t in our immediate future, like it or not it will be part of our future if we plan on staying around doing custom applications.  I am very glad that early on I chose to work with Vista since by doing so I was acquainted with it and prepared (as much as possible anyway), for the inevitable “issues” that I would be dealing with from customers as they floated into Vista systems.
