The Future of Microsoft Windows Vista

Microsoft is reigning over the world of computer and none can defy this fact and with Windows 7, the company has gained a momentum, which would be almost impossible for any other company to surpass in next few years. It seems, with Windows 7, a screenplay of Microsoft’s Pride and Prejudice is staged.

Microsoft is reigning over the world of computer and none can defy this fact and with Windows 7, the company has gained a momentum, which would be almost impossible for any other company to surpass in next few years. It seems, with Windows 7, a screenplay of Microsoft’s Pride and Prejudice is staged. The latest Windows Operating System has given the company an amazing pride and honour backup for what it is well known for.

Today, Windows 7 has been by officially acclaimed as one of the best among operating systems, available in market. This latest delight from Microsoft tops the chart of customer satisfaction on every scale. Thus, Windows 7 is garnering accolades from all corners.

This latest Windows Operating System is a sibling of Microsoft’s last marathon attempt, Windows Vista. Or, it would be better to say, Windows 7 is an improved version of Windows Vista. This was the first time, when Microsoft gave an utterly technical and hi-tech look to its operating system. Alike, Windows 7, Windows Vista too earned loads of acclamation from users. But there were shortcomings in it, which were not letting people complete fun of operating system. Microsoft figured out the drawbacks of Vista and engineered to give a more adorable look to it. Windows Vista is that modified version of Windows Vista.

The point of the matter is that will it be that down the line from now, let’s says in next 18 months would there be any one willing running something like Windows Vista. And if yes why?

Let’s break out this next generation of holdouts as follows:

* Home users who do not have the technical skill sets to upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Their computers work just all right with Windows Vista, and they find no reason to fix what is not out of order. Sooner or later, they will purchase a new computer system, at which point they’ll be upgraded to Windows 7 — whether they like it or not.

* Enterprise IT shops that dictate their own upgrade cycles (as opposed to following Microsoft’s cycles). These shops will eventually get around to upgrading, but not until their current investments in Vista-generation systems and applications is at least partially depreciated (think the 2011-12 time frame).

* Hard-core Vista fans who think Windows “6″ actually better than Windows 7 (actually, 6.1). I know, it’s hard to imagine such an individual. But believe me, such people do exist. These Vista loyalists will resist Windows 7 because to embrace it will mean admitting that its predecessor, Windows Vista — an OS they defended publicly and to which they’ve developed a deep emotional attachment — was in fact fundamentally flawed.

Hence, when Windows 7 hit the market, all those who wanted to get Vista but not able to do so due to its shortcomings, rushed to get latest Microsoft Windows Operating System. It was a surprising fact that within one month of launching windows 7 captured 5 % of total market share. But, with rise of Windows 7, Windows Vista was completely forgotten.

Nonetheless, despite of arrival of high end operating systems, Microsoft’s one of the initial version of operating system, XP is still highly used but Vista doesn’t seem to be that lucky. Wishing all the best to Vista and its dynamic sibling, Windows 7…
