“Early feedback from testers already using Windows Vista RC1 (Release Candidate 1) report that the OS is more stable than expected, which bodes well for Microsoft’s plan to have Vista out according to its current schedule.”

Comentariul slashdot:

Mind you, “expected” is relative given how many users regard their frequent crashes as normal operation for a PC.

Am citit tot articolul din link-ul de mai sus si ideea generala este ca Vista a impresionat atat de mult si pare atat de stabil incat nici nu mai este necesara o versiune “release candidate 2” inainte de lansarea finala. Va fi lansat la pentru clientii business in noiembrie si pentru end-useri in ianuarie.

Cel mai amuzant paragraf din articol il consider a fi asta:

Even smaller applications such as Solitaire and Minesweeper games have a next-generation look and feel in Windows Vista RC1, Brust said. “It’s a trivial example, but it shows a certain attention to detail [on the part of Microsoft],” he said.

Oh yes… Windows: Nothing but an expensive, poorly written game of Solitaire.

Tot ma minunez cum poti sa vinzi cu o gramada de bani o noua versiune a sistemului de operare care nu aduce nimic nou in afara interfetei care foloseste o gramada de resurse. La inceput se laudau cu “noul” file system winfs pe care l-au abandonat pana la urma pentru Windows Server 2007.

Winfs nu este decat o layer sql peste NTFS si se presupune ca abstractizeaza si face mai rapid accesul la fisiere. Vom vedea prin 2007 de ce este in stare winfs-ul. Pana atunci sunt curios ce vanzari o sa aiba Microsoft cu Vista.

Inchei cu inca doua citate. Unul tot din articolul referitor la Vista :

“The philosophy of Vista has been to have things ‘just work’ when you connect them and right now, some things just do not,” he said. “Obviously this issue is going to get better with time and as hardware manufacturers work closer with Microsoft to remedy these problems.”

LeBlanc sized up the hardware driver situation in Windows Vista RC1 this way: “Some work, some don’t. Heck, Microsoft doesn’t even have Vista drivers for some of its own hardware, including its new LifeCams.”

si celalalt, un comentariu al unui cititor slashdot :

Just what I f*cking wanted. New-look minesweeper. Thanks!

Si eu va multumesc :D
