BBC NEWS | Technology | Microsoft warns on Vista update:
Truly it must be so. At least if you read all the headlines.
I mean it BREAKS things. I mean READ THIS KB — http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935796/en-us
It breaks BitDefenderAV version 10. I mean let’s dismiss the fact that the vendor has a supported version already available shall we?
While there are times that Vista deserves the headlines it gets, the BBC’s headline is just a cheap shot at what is merely documentation telling you to go click on “update now”.
I had a funny conversation the other day with a guy who teaches computer accounting in college. He said that they had rolled out Vista and the users either liked it or were neutral about it. That it was the ITPros that were kicking and screaming the most about it. Tonight I was cobbling up an old computer to donate to a church and didn’t realize it only had 256
K (megs) (1)in it. When I went to download Trend it warned that I was below the recommended RAM and that installing the A/V would slow it down. So I scrounged around and kicked it up to more ram. The moral of this story is that we don’t run efficient businesses in a 256 K (megs) (1) world.
I haven’t considered 256
K(megs)(1) RAM a decent spec for a workstation in ages. Anything less than a gig is now sitting in our storage area being used for parts and what not.
But beware gang.. but SP1 “breaks things”. Yeah.
(1) never can count without a calculator
