Submission + - M$ Officially Discourages Vista Migrations. ( 1

twitter writes: "If you are one of the very few companies working on a Vista migration, M$ says it's time to stop and work on Windows 7 instead.

It's official. Bill Veghte, Microsoft's senior VP for Windows business, told an audience of the Microsoft faithful at TechEd that Windows users should not switch to Vista. Veghte said, "If you're just starting your testing of Vista, with the [Windows 7] Release Candidate and the quality of that offering, I would switch over and do your testing on the [Windows 7] Release Candidate, and use that going forward."

This should prove embarrassing enough on the job for your successor to propose a GNU/Linux migration instead. Despite the big noise, Windows 7 is Vista and should be avoided the same way."
