>US Army to adopt Vista and Office 2007 by end of 2009<
US Army just like Post Office.
They don't have to make a profit.
because, they are government owned.
They have millions of tax payers backing them.
So, don't mix private company and government owned.

What they use the taxpayers money on is advanced weaponry. THAT is why they are so powerful. Not because of their "office administrators". It's because our guys can kill 100 guys with a press of a button from half way around the world.

B) Army intelligence is like Jumbo Shrimp....
C) My reliable info comes from life experience

My reliable internet forum experience tells ME that you didn't read past the first line and just post hastily anything to bash Vista (or anything YOU don't like)...or you're just a fanatical anti-fanboi who just reads every bit of info in your own interpretation (as well as your "life experience").
Gimme a break! lol

I'm an average user using XP on a four year old computer. I edit video, burn CDs and DVDs, produce a ten page newsletter among a lot of other tasks. All with no problems. I can't remember the last time XP crashed.
Is there something I'm missing here?
Even if I upgrade to a faster computer, I assume that all of the above tasks will run faster ... but probably only seconds faster."
Purplecanoe,I couldn't agree with you more!
I'm using good ol' trusty Windows XP on a nearly five-year-old Compaq desktop with no problems whatsoever. I also see no reason to switch. I'm a firm believer in the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Well, XP ain't broke! I had/have absolutely no interest in switching to Vista, and I have no interest in switching to Windows 7. As long as XP keeps working for me, and I don't know why it would stop since the only reason I need and want a computer is for the Internet, e-mail, and word processing, I'm staying with it. Just because something is newer doesn't necessarily make it better.

According to Forrester 1/3 of North American Companies have started to deploy Vista
"Forrester Research had indicated that almost one third of North American and European corporations have started deploying Vista."
I guess the companies we service are not in that 1/3rd
And your "reliable internet forum experience" LOL...Please.. see what is going on in the real world.
I do not see it anywhere, except for the occasional fool who purchased their equipment from a retailer. (Which in my own unscientific survey has shown that 1 in 10 like Vista).Or a tech just using it for testing or experimental purposes.
I did read past the first line, yes we do have Vista running on our network, yes we do deploy server 2008, bla, bla, bla. I am sorry if you were one of the unfortunate to pay over 400.00 US for Vista Ultimate, what's so Ultimate about it is that it is the Ultimate rip off. And I am not a fanatical antifanboy, as a matter of fact we make a pretty good living off of all those poor Vista customers. I am just stating the facts as I see them. BTW, the article was about upgrading to 7, which unless you are running Vista is a waste, except for new hardware purchases, where you are paying for it anyway.

Maybe if you followed the Forrester report link, it shows this was in the beginning of the year and some might have completed by now?
Maybe your world is just your world and it's a bit different from the world that global market research companies work in?
Hey, you know if your skills are "XP support", guess where you are going to be working...hmmm...

reads financial pages
Oh, wait. I think I just supported your point. ;)
I cannot corroborate your reads financial pages.... Perhaps you could provide links to your sources for corroboration?
However, here is what I find on CITI:
07/09/09 - 12:32 PM EDT
Financial stocks were on the rise Thursday, after an executive suite shake-up at Citigroup (C Quote) and an upgrade for Goldman Sachs (GS Quote).

Former CFO Gary Crittenden is leaving the company. The changes come on top of other management changes last week, following the departure of Ajay Banga, the former head of Citi's Asia-Pacific operations. Banga took a position with MasterCard (MA Quote). Citi shares were adding three cents to $2.65.
NYSE: C, Financial Price: 2.65 Change: 0.03 | 1.14% Last Update: 1:11 PM ET 07/09/09 YTD Performance: -59.91%
Looks like Citi is sinking as fast as the Titanic! Perhaps it is because they (supposedly) still use Windows 2000? ;) Or is it because they were, are and will continue to be losers? ?:| Who are too cheap to do business and upgrade since what over nine years?
