Summary: Vista #2 does not impress decision-making personnel
After Vista flop, Indian CIOs not open to new Windows
Microsoft, the world’s largest software maker, may be throwing parties for potential customers to test its Windows 7 operating system to be launched in October, but many chief information officers (CIOs) are not joining the party yet.
Reliance Communications, Asian Paints, Essar Group and some other companies will wait to see how efficient the new product of Microsoft is before shifting to it, after the Vista failed to deliver on the promise of a faster and sleeker operating system.
Windows Vista was lauded and hailed prior to its release and shortly afterwards, before it got some real-world tests, leading to testimonies which overrode pseudo-reviews that Microsoft PR had managed. █
