Why Vista matters

Got Vista on your brain?

Read this article by Darryl K. Taft in eWeek.

(Link edited at 3.28pm Pacific to point to longer version of article.)

Excerpts:

  • "So building Windows applications just got easier and much more exciting,"
  • "I'm not just talking about the new Aero look and feel, but Vista itself has superior rendering capabilities due to its new WDDM (Windows Display Driver Model) to leverage the power within the video graphics cards,"
  • "However, it's now clear that smart application developers and technology product marketers will build killer applications using Vista's advanced graphics and communications technology,"
    Schadler said. The New York Times' Times Reader, a Vista-based beta application, is one such application, he said.
    "It's the visuals and the underlying capabilities made manifest in killer applications that will convince consumers to upgrade," Schadler said. "It took only one application to convince me: the Times Reader."

Read the entire article.

Now I ask again: Got Vista?

Go get it, now!

Better yet, ask me how - only if you are/represent a small to medium-sized business.
