Windows Vista launches

Bill Gates has been doing the publicity trail this week to promote the latest version of Windows; Windows Vista. Vista gives you a search facility, some funky 3D graphics things, some transparency effects and "additional security". The product was originally chalked for release in late 2003 but the development of the software was effectively restarted at this point.

It will cost you £100 to upgrade your home machine, or £290 for a business edition, which is quite a price tag. The hardware requirements of Vista are pretty hefty so you may wish to upgrade your PC while you're at it, in which case they'll throw in a copy of Vista with it.

Whichever way you look at it, it's going to cost you.

From what I have read on beeb/tech it ain't that secure.

Also read it doesn't support MSN Messenger. Duhhhh!

It is very steep pricetag. But there again I ain't never paid for windows so I am not going to start now.
