Microsoft Launches Vista Officially

On 30th November, Microsoft finally lauched much awaited VISTA in a business conference. It was almost 2 years since it was proposed codenamed as Longhorn and later renamed as Vista.

The launch of Vista has been repeatedly delayed because -- by Microsoft's own admission -- it over-complicated the product. But it now claims the software system makes loading and playing digital music and displaying digital photographs much easier.

Microsoft's chief executive, Steve Ballmer, claimed the company's new launches were "game changing" developments. "We expect that more than 200 million people will be using at least one of these products by the end of 2007," he said. "I believe they signal the beginning of a new wave of innovation that will have an even more profound impact during the next decade."

Does that mean vista can offer more to the gaming communuity. Well they said the same thing when they launched XP, but besides offering Latest Direct X drivers, they didnt do much. In fact screwed up many games after patching XP 2 intial version (it was fucked up if you remember).

As we all know, with micrsoft products being highly utilised by other vendors and game developers. Its very unlikely that we wont switch to VISTA and considering Microsoft sheer hijacking techniques when it comes to distribution, you can imagine all new desktop being VISTA ready before they hit your desk.

eventually Microsoft will leave you only ONE choice, Upgrade to Vista or DIE!
