Windows Microsoft is hard at work trying to battle the public and businesses' perception about Windows Vista. They already published a whitepaper named "Five Misunderstood Features in Windows Vista", detailing some of what they believe are misunderstandings. Now, they also published a document wit five reasons to deploy Windows Vista - and why you shouldn't wait for Windows 7.

a repair install doesn't actually fix the problem of the blue screen it just resets everything for you to do it all again at a later date where you curse windows for not working correctly.

9 times out of 10 the problem is with some driver or update that's been installed recently.

The reason these features are misunderstood is because a lot of people who think they understand windows don't actually know more than the step by step process to do the task.

Now that they've changed the processes people hate the change. The MS user base is going to kill windows innovation (which they sorely need) by resisting.

I think the installer for vista is their best so far with all GUI menus for tasks we previously had to run from a command line. it has everything you need without having to hold onto cd's like 98, ghost.

No OS is better or worse if you just take the time to understand why rather than the how.

As a computer store repair tech i'm sure you've had a conversation similar to this many times:
"my computer isn't working anymore! FIX IT!"
"i'm sure i can help, what's the problem?"
"I don't know just fix it!"
