Windows Two negative reviews of Vista RC1. First off, CRN says: "Microsoft is making its first Vista release candidate and pricing information more broadly available to partners and consumers this week. Solution providers who have seen it say it's not yet ready for prime time." Our favourite Microsoft Apple Microsoft zealot Paul Thurrot posted the 2nd part of his RC1 review: "Overall, Windows Vista is a stunning bit of work. But the devil is in the details, as they say, and Microsoft has never been very good at consistency and that final bit of polish that separates something competent from something wonderful." In the meantime, one of Vista's lead developers has left Microsoft.

"You know, I just wonder if anyone has ever attempted to upgrade each OS from Windows 3.11 to Windows XP. It might be easier to get Windows 95 to run on today's computers than 3.11 but it would be interesting to see if you could do it and have a working system."

Some guy posted this here a few days ago in another Vista story... An upgrade marathon: all the way from MSDOS 5 + Windows 1.0 to Winxp..
