Windows In a surprise criticism of Microsoft, the UK government's schools computer agency, has warned that deploying Vista carries too much risk and that its benefits are unclear. Becta, the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency, said on Wednesday that it 'strongly recommends' schools do not deploy Microsoft's next operating system within the next 12 months. And in a further dig at Microsoft, Becta argues there are no 'must-have' features in Vista and that "technical, financial and organisational challenges associated with early deployment currently make [Vista] a high-risk strategy."

I can understand being cautious when installing a new OS or a new version of the OS.

No problem there, but when he says there are no major new features, he is being a total moron.

Here check this out:

That is a ton of major new features. Just because you are too ignorant or too lazy to look and see what features are new does not mean there are not any.
