About that new Microsoft OS...

It seems that Microsoft still can't get the new Windows right. Providing yet another stark contrast to Apple Computer, Microsoft announced today that their new operating system, code-named VIsta, will be delayed until at least 2007.

This news comes as no surprise to those of us who remember the much-hyped 'Longhorn' operating system that Microsoft waws planning to release some years ago, thus eclipsing Apple's OS X. Since then, Apple has released increasingly powerful and easy-to-use iterations of the Macintosh OS X while Microsoft is still fixing security holes and promising the Next Big Thing- while utterly failing to deliver. This latest failure to deliver the oft-delayed successor to Windows XP, coming as it does on the heels of the well-known security weaknesses of Windows, makes those of us who utilise alternative operating systems even more secure in our choices, risky thought they seemed at the time!

So in future, as you poor Windows-users curse your balky and buggy systems, remember, there is an easy cure for your travails- GET A MAC!
