Pros: Eye candy?
Cons: Hidden costs
Summary: If I were to install Vista I would have to 1.Buy a new film scanner. 2.Buy a new printer. 3.Buy a new flatbed scanner. 4.Replacement for Norton security. 5. Not sure about system mechanic. That alone would make the real cost to me to be in four figures. "If it aint broke don't fix it"Updated
Despite my 'negative review' of Vista (I'm surprised that some submissions are so vitriolic about Vista - have they Microsoft shares?) I find it excellent when it comes to organizinig and finding individual images. Also on the plus side IE7 is way more secure(can be run with XP Pro also) The photo slide show gadget on the desktop is very 'cool'- can a 68yr old use that word?! My two current critics,who's views I respect, should let Microsoft sort probs.and don't take offence when somebody doesn't trust Vista YET. BTW. I have to replace my Nikon Coolscan which will cost me 650Euro approx.and MS and Nikon inform me that there's no Vista driver and won't be.
