Forecast Cloudy for Windows Vista

Filed under
Microsoft

Microsoft spent significant marketing dollars last month to announce that it will call its next-generation operating system Windows Vista. But what's in store for users? Wired News procured a beta 1 sample of Vista to see if there was anything to get excited about.

What we found were a lot of attractive graphical interfaces and new search-engine functions, but, so far, not too much in the way of productivity or security enhancements. Microsoft promises more features in the upcoming beta 2 version, and the release version is scheduled to go on sale next year.

What are the new features, compared with Windows XP?

What are the minimum PC requirements to run and install Windows Vista?

What about backward compatibility with existing programs and PC peripherals?

And What about security?

Answers to these questions and many more.
