Many people who rushed into the download and installation of the new Windows Vista are having second thoughts. Like everything new, the bugs are not quite worked out. Microsoft has a great concept in Windows Vista, except it has some potential problems. Many businesses run Windows XP or Windows 2000 and have established great success with their current product and tend to be a little apprehensive about installing the new Windows. They may have a good reason. The Window Systems they are using now have been around longer, are tested, and have been proven to work for businesses with IT technicians. Many businesses are waiting for the Service Pack 1 to become available before installing Windows Vista.
The biggest downfall to installing Windows Vista is that some applications are not as compatible as Microsoft had hoped for and this is a major concern. Many companies that have older computer systems are worried that when they install the operating system on their older computers, they are going to have additional costs in upgrading computers and other applications and software that they currently use now. This concern is not only been proven by businesses but also by personal computer users.
If you are a personal computer user, your software and other applications may be compatible with Windows Vista, as for business owners, they have many different programs that will more than likely not run correctly once they install the new Windows System. This is the top concern. If a business relies on communication through computers, they are going to want a compatible Windows System that will allow them to use their current software and applications. This concern is the biggest problem that businesses have with Windows Vista.
Another concern is coming from people who work at home as a freelancer. Many companies that are hiring for work-at-home jobs are not accepting people who have Windows Vista. Their computer systems and software will not work with the new Microsoft Windows. This is causing concern for home workers who are buying new computers in hopes of making a living at home.
Since the issues with the compatibility of Windows Vista have become such a hot computer topic, many have expressed concern about not being able to use the program. Many would like to use it but feel it may hinder not only a business environment but also a home environment. If you have a newer computer with Windows XP and the newer software, it might not become an issue with the software, but if your computer is older and upgraded to Windows XP and then Windows Vista, then you will probably run into software issues.
Many people are upgrading without reading the reviews and issues about upgrading, how it affects their current software, and the possible problems. After they have installed the new Windows Vista, people are having problems with programs not running. They are finding that they have to also upgrade all the software or not use it at all. This causes concern for people who need the software they have and cannot afford to upgrade everything at one time. Many people also have slower running computers and find out that the computer is running slower after the upgrade.
Windows Vista is a hot computer topic because of the concerns and issues, but also because people are waiting for the service pack to be released. Once the service pack is released and more people start having better performance from Windows Vista, it might then sell faster. Right now, the reviews of the Windows program are split fifty-fifty on the ease of use and the performance. Of course, like any new Microsoft product that comes out, Windows Vista is no different, many people wait to make sure all the glitches are worked out before rushing out to buy the product. This is something more of a personal choice more than anything.
