I have heard nice things about Vista, mostly related to its beauty. I’ve also heard corporations are not clamoring to upgrade, but I say give it some time – once consumers get hooked in next spring, there will be a lot more buzz. Then I’ve heard:
– that pirated copies of the software may be floating around that are already infected with malware;
– and that hackers have been getting all keyed up for it’s release.
This isn’t the kind of news you like to see, regardless of it’s validity (or the underlying potential for risk longevity).
