+ - Dvorak on Vista - Nothing Solved

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Dvorak's thoughts on Vista:

"Since the early days of DOS (and even with the Mac OS), there has been a slow shift within the operating-system concept from increased functionality to increased featurism, neither of which are needed."

"Now we have Vista. It turns out to be nothing like what was promised. What a shock. It has a few new features, but I'd question if it's actually more functional than what we've had before."

"So what happens now? We start by playing with Vista and listening to the inevitable complaints and praises. But this OS is not designed to be a good candidate for upgrading older systems. This is something of a new phenomenon. Thus, people about to phase out old machines might be a little more experimental. And that means trying Linux.""
