Link: Few rush out to buy new Windows Vista - Yahoo! News. Was it only 12 years ago that I stood outside a computer store at midnight to buy my first copy of Windows 95? I was excited, and I ran home and stayed up all night installing this magical operating system that gave me a graphical interface to replace my DOS command line. The lines were long in 1994, but the bloom is off the Microsoft rose. If you adopt Windows Vista, the chances are it is because you need a new computer, and the operating system is pre-installed. That is okay. Just don't let me catch you standing in line outside of a computer store to give Microsoft your money for Vista. Just don't.
