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.

Dell is just telling its corporate users to watch ahead before jumping and I think it is okay, I'd like that from my provider. For most home users changing from XP to Vista may not be as difficult or problematic than for large company networks, although it will be expensive indeed.

Anyway, if you take a look around at the computers that are being sold right now, most of them should not have any problem running Vista at all. Another thing is the installed base, that probably won't be worth to migrate.

After all, for me the key thing will be software compatibility. If this one is properly achieved (which is not the case to my knowledge nowadays) it will be just a matter of time for Vista to take on the new computers at both corporate and home world.
