Windows Vista

By now you have heard that Windows Vista -- the new Microsoft operating system -- is coming. (The Vista is coming! The Vista is coming!) The system requirements for Vista have been announced and -- thankfully -- Microsoft has also created the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor which will tell you if your system is Vista-ready. The Upgrade Advisor is a piece of software that downloads quickly and works just as fast. People are saying that you should not just meet the minimum requirements for Vista, but beat them. Keep that in mind if you are going to be purchasing a new system soon.

BTW Microsoft has discontinued support of several operating systems: Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me. In addition, computers running Windows XP need to install SP 2 (service pack 2) in order to be "in line" with what Microsoft is doing.

Thanks to Michael Sauers for the pointer to the Upgrade Advisor.
