Customers tell Dell sell "what we know well"

 

Well you couldn't make it up could you? The much maligned computer manufacturer Dell has been told by 11,000 of its customers that they are not Vista ready yet and would like to buy pc's with XP rather than Vista.

Some people don't like change. It reminds me of  a saying often used by Management Leader Tom Peters, quoting an American General .

" if you don't like change - you are going to like irrelevance even less".

I know technology can be frustrating but we are living at a time of great opportunity. I believe if we embrace change and are not frightened by it - we can more easily start to live the sort of lives we really want to.  

Technology in itself I can't get excited by but the fact that it has enabled me to reinvent myself in new and exciting ways, most definitely can.  Long live the revolution !

Hmm, from all I've heard about Vista I'd be with the 11,000! Call me a conservative...

Here I provide some reasons to use Vista instead of XP

I have been using Vista for 3 months and also in beta for 4 months before that. No problems. I like the search in every page and help pages are much better. I'm no IT expert but can pretty easily find my way around. My post was really about peoples reaction to change. One of the geeks I sometimes work for says " if you live on the edge - you're gonna bleed". I have many scars but i love it so much i keep coming back.
thanks for the comments.

Now I use XP, but I think it just so so.
