[hardocp] Coders Tell Why They’re Avoiding Vista

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Several programmers were interviewed and gave their reasons why they or their companies are not writing applications for Vista. This further supports a survey which reported that fewer than 1 in 12 developers are targeting the beleaguered operating system.



According to data released this spring by migration software vendor AppDNA Ltd., about a fifth of enterprise applications running on XP break when moved straight to Vista, mostly due to pre-XP-era code still lingering in the app. That increases to nearly half for apps migrated from 32-bit XP straight to 64-bit Vista.

Right about.

"I won't do anything about Vista til my clients do"

"I won't touch Vista til my developers write stuff for it"

Yea, contrary to common belief Vista does have something in common with Linux.

Same reason people won't code for Vista is the same reason there aren't too much linux drivers (compared to Windows that is).
