Vista (un)Ready Toshiba Products

I normally don’t get excited about things too easily.  When you’ve been in this industry as long as I have nothing comes as a surprise.  That changed slightly today.

Initially, Toshiba posted a document on their site with Vista Ready models that included a number of 2 year old and newer equipment.  Today I find out differently.

 …and from Microsoft, no less.

 What was Toshiba thinking?  If their own people can’t get it right, how on earth are end-users supposed to figure it out – and at what cost?

I’m starting to think that Vista isn’t all it’s hyped up to be.  It especially hurts when top-of-the-line hardware bought at a premium price only 2 years ago isn’t up to the challenge.

I think Microsoft needs to redress the requirements or work more closely with vendors to clear up the confusion and the backlog of driver development before Vista turns into another Windows ME.

Almost unacceptable…..
