Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell has taken the unusual step - for a PC vendor of its size - of toning down its sales pitch for Microsoft's Vista operating system and warning businesses of the migration challenges that lie ahead for them. The step is particularly unusual because one of the issues the hardware vendor is warning business about is the extra hardware they will need to buy.

it is expensive,

Yup.

unstable,

Well, that's not Microsoft's fault. It's the problem with the drivers because some vendors obviously didn't notice the release.

and incompatible with a lot of the installed software base as well as with a lot of hardware,

That's true, but most more or less recent software will run.

*I* think that the problem is that the people do not NEED Vista. It doesn't have the features that would justify the hassle to upgrade all comps.

Apart from those things, I don't like it

Seconded.
