    Headlines - Intel has no compelling case for adopting Vista

    Vista has had its fair share of bad press, but it doesn't get much worse than Intel saying it'll skip Vista completely. Ouch.

    Re: Headlines - Intel has no compelling case for adopting Vista

    This article makes little sense.

    "This isn’t a matter of dissing Microsoft, but Intel information technology staff just found no compelling case for adopting Vista," the person said.

    Well, if that isn't a diss, we don't know what is. Ouch
    Why should Intel adopt Vista on their internal systems if they see no benefit from it?

    NASA are still using Fedora Core 4, although they are upgrading it soon by the looks of it.

    Why change something that does its job? More so if its going to cost money?
    Its not just the cost of the OS either, but I'd imagine Intels network / systems to be fairly none mainstream. The testing involved would probably be huge.

    I don't blame them, Vista is still the Augustus Gloop of operating systems and it doesn't look like it is going to get any gastric banding any time soon.

    Vista will still be fairly abundant within Intel where development takes place.

    But I guess other staff will stay with XP.

    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Re: Headlines - Intel has no compelling case for adopting Vista

    I don't see the issue with this.

    Shell still use Win2K on the vast majority of PCs offshore and probably in the offices as well. Converting to XP would massively expensive, I can't see them going for Vista either. Especially with the much vaunted Windows 7 coming out in 2009.

    Unless I'm much mistaken the widespread rollout of XP at Intel took place in 2006 (that's 5 years after release, folks), so it's hardly shocking news.

    Re: Headlines - Intel has no compelling case for adopting Vista

    I only got XP on my work machine this week!! Just because its the latest and greatest doesn't mean companies are going to buy it.

    I don't really see the purpose of the article, Intel will be using Vista for testing and XP for the masses...just the same as most companies currently do. In fact, most companies are probably using Win 2k than XP.

    To sum it up in a short and sweet manner, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
