The overly anticipated and over-dued release of Microsoft's new operating system OS Vista hasn't made a good reputation in the public's eye so far.
First of all, there is five version of Vista each for different level of users.
Secondly, it's extremely heavy in processing power and requires very powerful computers to run. I wonder who'd want to spend another few hundred to upgrade an already fully functional computer, not to mention OS.
And now, news just came out that Microsoft will monopolise OS security market (aka free antivirus and firewall for all) built into it's new Vista. No third party antivirus softwares are allowed. period.http://news.google.com/news?q=microsoft+security
Now, I wonder what will Norton, McAfee, Avast, AVG and every other existing security software corporate giant feel.
"That's the end of the tunnel!"
"We'll need to schedule a bankruptcy meeting!"
"Maybe we can start selling padlocks to our consumers!"
"Ramen noodle shops sounds like a good idea!"
