With official Windows Vista shipments just days away, Sneak is surprised that there is so little consensus about the pros and cons of the new platform. Microsoft executives will no doubt have been pleased to see the InformationWeek story headlined: “No Surprises With Vista--Thankfully”. Meanwhile opponents of forklift software upgrades will have been less pleased by the story over at IT Wire, headlined: “Plenty of surprises with Vista -- thankfully”. Well, they may be a contradictory bunch these IT publications, but at least they remember to say thanks. The real story, of course, is that there will be a surprising number of surprises in Vista. But Sneak reckons you'd be wise to say “no thanks” until SP1 ships.
