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.

While Fitzgerald accepted that some business are holding back from migrating to Vista, he denied that there is a widespread feeling that it is better to wait for Service Pack 1. "I have heard that, and I don't buy it," Fitzgerald said. "It used to be a thing people did, and it might have been the case with, say, Windows 2000, but not now."


Why not? What has changed? Was the code made more simple hence more bugfree? Were all promised advantages implemented we've hoped for? Have companies become so much richer to throw their money to half baked product?

Yeah, I don't see the time honored practice of waiting for SP1 for any MS OS changing anytime soon.

Mine has. It's called waiting for SP2.

I think it is more waiting for drivers and other software than Windows itself.
