Today’s Vista preview filled the inbox as much as Saturday’s Zune review.
One reader thanked me for not being one of those reporters who “fall all over themselves to gush undeserved plattitudes about the Mob Squad from Redmond.”
Another is concerned about Microsoft’s direction: “You have to think when computers run the world and nearly all aspects of our lives, and the operative word at the company that makes the software on 9 out of 10 of these boxes uses vocabulary from 50 years ago. Cool.”
Yet he said he’ll wait a bit before taking the Vista plunge:
“My guess is the great majority of people will upgrade only as part of a
new PC purchase. The migration will, of course, take place. The real
question is at what pace. Personally — and I use PCs extensively for a
living in the tech world — I’ll wait for others to lead the way.”
