Not surprising, the features of vista simply aren't worth the hardware requirements for a school. They've got budgets to think about, and while Aero looks pretty it's a waste of money in an educational setting. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:18, 13 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FINALLY! Someone has used some common sense. I was starting to wonder if I was the only person in the world to notice that their PC doesn't actually do anything useful now that it didn't do on windows 95! Got a problem with MS Word? Use Open Office, say goodbye to the bluescreens and save a fortune too. No brainer. Shane.Bell 09:04, 14 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Microsoft should establish Open Source OS[edit]

Microsoft should develop an open source operating system of windows and make a open source community to develop it like other open source OS, as its too costly for the education institute & poor countries. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:58, 14 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
