Microsoft Vista first in New Zealand. Yawn!

Thanks to our time zone, New Zealand was the first country in the world to be able to buy Microsoft’s new operating system, Vista. To me, it’s a big yawn (despite the publicity stunt involving the very lovely Dan Carter).

When Windows 95 was released, also
first in New Zealand, the common refrain around the world was “Windows95 = Mac 87”. Fast forward, and Vista looks like Macintosh OS 10. Nothing much new, in other words.

I’m not upgrading to
Vista. If anything, I’m more likely to switch back to Mac, but that’s another story altogether.
