Windows Vista advantage

Computers & gadgets, Software, Windows

Microsoft is known to shell out OS that power more than 90% of the personal computers across the globe. Everything Microsoft does makes the news. Whenever they announce a new product, huge hype and anticipation builds around the release. Same was the case when Vista was launched in January last year. Everybody was so anxious to see the new ground breaking operating system by the king in the same(OS) market.

Though it dint go down all good with everyone (i think its almost impossible to make “everyone” happy), it won the hearts of many because of its features and ease of use which are key points in evaluating a software.

I used XP for a long time (like everyone else) before switching over to Vista. Actually, at first, i was dual booting XP with Vista as at that time not every software of daily use was compatible with Vista. So even though i loved every bit of my Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, i could not make a full switch to Vista. But as time passed more and more software and hardware became compatible with Vista and today, i cant recall a famous software hardware not compatible with Vista. As a result, i have now switched over to Vista completely.


Vista is available in 6 version viz Windows Vista Starter,Windows Vista Home Basic,Windows Vista Home Premium,Windows Vista Business,Windows Vista Enterprise,Windows Vista Ultimate.

I have been running Windows Vista from almost since its launch now. And i must say so far the journey has been amazing.
Earlier i used to face many annoying problems like BSOD for no reason(duh!), system crash, security problems. All of them when i least wanted them to happen. That was very frustrating for me.But none like that happened with Vista. I can work carefree without any fear of any crash or intrusion or attack.
I loved Vista mainly because of its features, which most of them are, still unique to Vista.

The Vista is the most safe and secure operating system from Microsoft’s stable till date. It offers many safety feature like UAC ( User Account Control), UAC makes it difficult for malware to gain control of the system by restricting privileges. Encryption of files with EFS or Encrypting File System, Bitlocker Drive Encryption for encrypting entire drives. Even the IE 7 that comes natively embedded in the OS is one of the most secure browser if compared without any add ons. IE 7 has phishing filter, can work in “protected mode” which makes it very safe browser. Windows Vista also offers a built-in anti-malware tool in “Windows Defender” which works pretty well.

On the general features list, Vista scores an ace. You name it and Vista has it, and has it better than what you could have imagined. Some of the important features i feel important discussing about are “Instant Search” which is very very effective,time saving, convenient way of finding your files. “Instant Search gets you your search results “as you type” and delivers accurate results. Very impressive i should say. Sidebar is another neat feature added to Vista. Sidebar lets you add useful widgets to your desktop adding increased functionality to your desktop. Very handy feature. Multimedia centred features such as a revamped Windows Media Centre, WIndows Media Player 11, Windows DVD maker, Windows Photo Gallery are all top notch in functionality and performance. You can even set “Parental COntrols” on your machine.

There is even more in store for you if you use “Windows Vista Ultimate version” in form of Windows Ultimate Extras like BitLocker, EFS, Windows Dreamscene (animated desktop background).

One thing for which Vista is so famous and which can not be ignored is AERO interface which stands for Authentic, Energetic, Reflective, and Open. Use AERO once and you will be blown off by the eye candy it has to offer. On XP i used Windows Blinds to make it look cooler, but Vista is already much higher, in premium league when it comes to appearance and eye candy stuff as compared to other OS in the market.

Have a look at AERO interface:

With features like “Ready Boost”, you can use your compatible USB drives as RAM for your Windows Vista powered PC.

As Microsoft has already announced that it will stop officially supporting XP, you will need to eventually upgrade to Vista if you have not done that already.If you are worried about the incompatibility issues, bugs etc then, let me inform you that many of the problems have been fixed in the Vista SP1 release.
If still you face any problems and you run Vista Ultimate or Vista business you can get support from Microsoft under Windows Vista Small Business Assurance Program. You can get free support over phone from July 1 to September 30.
So get your Windows Vista now, if you have not already!
