In the last few weeks it seems that Microsoft is on the warpath. Microsoft feels that
it has a bad image and it would like to change that. One of the major contributors to this
image is Windows Vista.
Windows Vista is perceived as a problematic OS (to say the least). Even though SP1 has
fixed some of the bad reputation that Vista received it is still perceived as a bad OS. In my
opinion this belief has no foundation, I have been using Vista for a very long time now
and I am very happy with it. Just as everything in life, Vista has a price: you need better
hardware (that is cheaper these days), ISVs had to fix application for them to run
on Vista and hardware manufacturers had to create drivers to fit the standards Vista has set.
Skeptics may say that none of the things I mentioned should happen for a consumer to be
able to enjoy Vista. In my opinion (again), this claim is absurd. I see the OS as the engine
of a system, would you mount a new super fast engine on an old airplanes body? Why not?
Oh,it would rip it apart…and whose fault would that be,the engines manufacturer or yours?
But we are diverging from what I wanted to write about in this post, which is ‘Mojave’.
based on rumors it seems that ‘Mojave’ is codename of a new OS created by Microsoft…Well
not exactly. As part of Microsoft’s attempt to fight back and tell it’s story about Vista,
Microsoft decided to meet with a group of Vista skeptics (basically people that think Vista is
bad). The group was told they will be shown a new OS codenamed Mojave and that they should
give feedback on the new product. Based on reports, 90% of the participants provided positive
At this stage they were told that Mojave is actually Windows Vista…
The whole experiment was filmed, I hope that it will be revealed,seeing the expressions
will be priceless…and as always,perception is everything.
