Running away from Windows Vista

With the launch of Windows 7 beta, a couple of my Messenger buddies have started putting “Running Windows 7” as their quick message. I think I’ll put “Running away from Windows Vista” as mine. 😛

Just kidding. Despite all the bad press about Windows Vista, I’ve been using it on a daily basis for almost a year now on a desktop at home and a laptop at work. In both cases, the machines came with Vista pre installed and work fine.

My desktop at the customers site is still XP as is an old desktop that I have at home. I also have a personal laptop with XP whose hard drive crashed last week. I’m thinking on installing the Windows 7 bits on it to take a spin.

Stay tuned.

Having focused on Microsoft-centric technology stacks for the best part of two decades, in recent years I’ve been educating myself on open source technologies such as Linux, networking and the open web platform.
