[Giz] Intel Skipping Vista

post #1 of 92
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Intel, Microsoft's BFF, is not going to upgrade its computers to Windows Vista. That's hands down the most hardcore corporate rebuke of Vista yet given how tight the two are, even though the source for the info says that it's not really "dissing Microsoft, but Intel information technology staff just found no compelling case for adopting Vista." Whatever, man.

Intel and many others—Gartner estimates a higher percentage of companies will skip Vista than the 30 percent that typically bypass a new Windows release. Windows 7 looming is no doubt a factor, but will it see a higher than average adoption rate in return? Anyone else decided to just "skip" Vista?

Just because its here to stay that doesn't mean its worth upgrading to.

Remember, businesses look for a return on investment. If they put money into buying Vista, then it has to increase profits for them (through increased productivity or decreased electrical use or whatever) to be worth getting.

Your looking at it from a consumer's perspective. Businesses have to look at it from a business perspective.

Just like how internet-cafe's in my area use ATi instead of nVidia. Why? Because down the line they can CrossFire a 38xx series with a 48xx if they need more juice to keep up with current and future games, nVidia cannot do that with their line of cards. ATi for the masses, nVidia for the select few. ATi wins.

Microsoft should have kept information on Vienna to itself. Not that that was the total reason, of course Vista doesn't offer anything to businesses really. I love the OS, but it is mostly server (in the form of Win Server '08) and Home beneficial in my experience.

Vista is a great OS right along with XP, they are both very user friendly, stable, secure enough, and well lets face it the price tag is the worst thing about either OS. I am just to blind to see why people are anti-vista, or anti any particular OS for that matter.
