I’m not one to bash Vista (or Microsoft) just for sport, but it sure seems like there’s a lot of news about Vista that isn’t good. For example:
Researchers have broken into Vista’s secure boot mechanism:
Vista takes longer to boot than XP did:
Vista security questioned after ANI exploit:
Vista firewall fails on outbound security:
Microsoft accused of deceptive marketing about Vista:
I’m not looking for bad news, but it seems to be everywhere. The only good news I can find are instances where Microsoft is patting itself on the back for doing such a good job with Vista:
Microsoft issues Vista security scorecard, gives itself an A-plus (Computerworld)
NSA Helped Microsoft Set Security for Vista
…and so on.
Pragmatically: I want Vista to succeed. I have written an e-book about Vista, and the success of my book is tied to the success of Vista.
