Gartner warns companies to stay away from Vista
November 14, 2005
According to analysts at Gartner, computer users in business should stay away from Microsoft's upcoming Vista operating system until at least 2008.
Gartner researchers also said that most of the security improvements offered by Vista are already available as third party add-ons to Windows XP. Vista won't be available until some time in 2006.
The note, titled: "Ten reasons you should and shouldn't care about Microsoft's Windows Vista client", says Vista offers the business user only incremental improvements. They recommend only putting it on new machines, and then not until it's had a two year bedding-in period.
Gartner says Internet Explorer 7 will have better security - to cut defections to Firefox. It also offers a personal firewall which was welcomed by Gartner but the analysts said laptop users should have at least a decent firewall protecting their machines already.
They also note that promised search function improvements in Vista are already available from firms like Google.
