The "Why upgrade to Vista" challenge…
Sun, Jul 30 2006 15:23
Do you have any compelling reasons to upgrade to Vista ? If so I'd love to hear them.
What I plant to do is keep a tally of features/ awarding points for and against. Of course those points will just be my opinion, and purely subjective ;) And I'm a hard sell ;)
It's worth noting I'm the kind of customer who turns OFF themes on XP.
Remember, this is weighing up "upgrading" .
Here's an indication of my point score:
* LPU account +7 (yes a massive 7 points as I think this is what every user really needs, but hard to do in XP without a lot of pain points)
* new Start menu -2
* new explorer -2
* network user interface -2 ( -2 for extra clicks needed, -1 for problems with WAP passwords, +1 for pretty network picture)
* personalize -2 (half baked, and requires more clicks)
* new games like Mahjong tiles +0.5 (yeh I know I shouldn't include this, but I'm feeling generous <g>)
* integrated Search +2
That's a running total of : 1.5 !!! Of course, we really need the value to be +10 or more to be a value proposition to upgrade (IMO)
Can you help tip the scales one way or the other ?
