Windows For any given release of Windows, there are companies that choose to skip it. But when the company is Intel, it's a big deal. Intel's IT department "found no compelling case" for upgrading to Windows Vista.

If everything works well, why upgrade latest version? We are still running Ubuntu 7.04. And it works excellent.


Ubuntu 7.04 came out after Vista and 7.04 will be no longer be supported after next April. When XP came out I was running Mandrake 8.2. It is of course no longer supported with security patches. An Ubuntu LTS (Long Term Support) release is supported for only 3 years for the desktop edition and five years for the server, a lot less than the seven year age of XP. Ubuntu 6.06 LTS desktop edition will lose support next June.

So XP is really ageing. Vista was just not the answer.
