Upgrade to Windows Vista?



By Ugo Eriobuna

The technology sector is of particular interest because of how new technology is changing our world on an almost daily basis. Windows Vista, the new operating system released towards the end of 2006 by Microsoft, is a prime example. Early users report that it is relatively uncomplicated and has easy an easy to use interface. Moreover, Vista offers substantial new capabilities in security, performance, reliability, and manageability. According to the Microsoft website, Windows Vista is built from the scratch up with a focus on secure development, an enhanced user experience, and optimization around hardware advancements.

It should be noted, however, that there have been problems arising in terms of security. Microsoft has touted Vista as a more secure version of Windows, but on the day of Vista’s official launch, a security company identified mailware already in circulation that can infect computers running the OS version of Vista. It is as yet unknown what Microsoft is doing to improve security for Vista.

A forthcoming article will explore the benefits and disadvantages of Windows Vista as a platform for the applications PC-users most often use.

I liked the use of cons and pros for vista. maybe you should've added some other information about microsoft, Bill Gates, or something similar at the beggining.

A nice and brief article. Maybe we could read more about the unique and extra features of Vista's version. I myself, don't still know the differences or advantages of this window. I think the type of story needs to be longer.
Totally, it was a nice article!
