Now that Windows Vista RC1 is out I should expect more and more of the machines that I come in contact with to be running the new Microsoft platform. My D820 is already running the RC1 build and I plan to try the T4210 with the RC1 bits over the course of the next few weeks (maybe I’ll do it during the week).
While I am pretty easy going when it comes to running slightly flakey builds of new operating systems, my wife adopts a much more steady pace for adoption – and while I have no doubt that she will upgrade when Vista finally hits RTM, there is probably a level of nervousness there.
I’d be interested to know how other folks in the industry convince their better halves to ride the bleeding edge like we do? And be honest, how often has the fact that “the family computer” is running a ((n+1)-1) operating system saved you in the past twelve months?
Maybe Nicola is just very wise?
