Advanteages And Disadvantages Of Windows Vista

Internally, Windows Vista refers to itself as Windows 6.0. When held up against Windows 2000 (Windows 5.0) or XP (5.1), that means nothing more than the fact that Microsoft considers Vista to be a major milestone, and the basis for its operating systems for the next few years at least. 

Windows Vista is like a papaya: sleek on the outside, but a big mess on the inside.

Love it or hate it, Vista is what Microsoft is serving up right now. Whether it goes down smoothly or gives you heartburn is up to you. On the plus side, Vista gives you a new, faster Search tool; the shiny, translucent “Glass” interface; and a revamped Windows Explorer. It’s also the first version of Windows where you can get Tablet PC and Media Center in the same package, which means you can use it to build a DVR(Digital Video Recorder) without a keyboard. 
And Vista handles videos and pictures much better than earlier versions of Windows, with improved thumbnail and metadata support built right into Windows Explorer. 

As for the minuses, Vista seems intolerably slow compared with its predecessors, and its reliability leaves something to be desired. The Green Ribbon of Death is an everyday occurrence, bringing down Windows Explorer if you so much as bat your eyes at it. And the horrendously annoying User Access Control (UAC) prompt forces you to endure repeated prompts for even the most mundane tasks in Control Panel.

Fortunately, you can deal with most of the minuses... I will let you know that in the coming days!
