Obviously you need Vista, and now is the time to buy! Don't pay attention to those Mac and Linux fools.. get Vista today! Here are ten reasons to help justify your purchase:
Ah, the thrill if the hunt! Vista may not support your printer, but that's what keeps your blood pumping, isn't it? A-hunting we shall go!
The bank is always nagging you about excess deposits, right? Well, since you never did find that Vista driver for your printer, here's your chance to spend some of it!
"Everybody" uses Windows. Why should you be different?
Microsoft knows what's best for you. If they say it's time to buy Vista, then that's what you need to do. Sure, you might need new hardware, but that's OK - it's only money.
Which version of Vista is right for you? Who knows.. but it'll be great fun trying to figure that out, won't it?
Vista's EULA (that's the stuff you don't read that you agree to when you install Vista) says "You may not work around any technical limitations in the software." So if Vista doesn't work the way you want it to, don't try to "work around" it. If you are a technical support person, well, I guess you won't be supporting Vista!
You don't really buy Vista - you license it. And Microsoft's EULA also says that you can only transfer the software license to someone else one time - they cannot pass it on to another person. So you can give your old computer to a friend, but they can't pass it on themselves.. not with Microsoft Vista on it, anyway!
Hey, at least Macs get some "Proof of concept" stuff now and then, but poor Linux gets almost now attention at all. Liven up your life, live on the edge: viruses help keep your mind sharp!
Both Macs and Linux suffer from being ready to go when you see the desktop. Windows is still busy doing background stuff and will ignore your clicks.. this is good, because you need some "me" time. Why rush into getting your work done?
Microsoft patch downloads almost always need to reboot your computer, giving you a needed break. Unlike Mac and Linux, you can depend on Microsoft patching frequently (Patch Tuesday!), giving you more breaks.
There you go.. ten good reasons to buy Vista!
