My old keyboard in Montreal, Canada. Taken on the 22nd of June 2006 with a Sony Cybershot DSC-P93 5.1MP camera.
Vista was released this week with some fanfare.
Am I thinking about upgrading soon?
Maybe if I have the real DVDs, they are supposed to be pretty cheap here.
What am I actually thinking about?
Getting a MacBook.
Actually, since I got a Terabyte Workstation sitting at home, I don’t plan on getting a Mac there, but just a MacBook for when I am on the go.
I wouldn’t mind doing the Vista thing on my desktop at home.
But… Like most IT guys, I would rather wait a little bit. For now, I don’t plan on taking care of that before our return from Thailand at the end of February. Until then, I am too busy.
The media has been critizing Vista a lot, and has been quite vocal about it. Most machines will not have the necessary hardware to run it fully. I don’t think I have that problem, I have loads of HD space and RAM (2 GBs) and a 256MB graphics card, so I am not worried about running it on my desktop.
The age old saying:
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Comes to mind when I think about those issues.
