After hearing about some of the annoying, useless little features that the fine folks at Microsoft injected into Windows Vista, I decided to list the Top 5 Reasons not to upgrade to this operating system. (Of course we could come up with more reasons.)
#5 New security feature: User Account Protection (UAP) pops up so many security warning windows that it will take an admin longer to close the pop up windows than it would to complete the task in the first place.
#4 Glass Windows feature stinks. It makes it hard to tell which Window is the active one. They look cool as hell but in reality this feature is technically useless.
#3 Media Center is now an overly complicated array of selections where previously in XP it was very uncluttered and easy to use.
#2 New licensing restriction on Vista allows you to transfer the operating system to only one other device. After that you will have to purchase another copy. If your computer crashes or has a hardware failure more than once, oh well. Break out the green baby.
#1 And the number one reason why you should NOT upgrade to Windows Vista is:
Ubuntu Linux Desktop and Server are FREE!
If anyone is planning on upgrading to Vista, I surely would like to know why?
