Flaws Are Detected in Microsoft’s Vista

For anyone who has been in the IT industry for any time at all, this story does not reveal any groundbreaking information. Any new release of an OS will have major bug/security holes for the first 6-12 months. That is what bred the concept of “Service Packs”. I think with Vista this will be the case even more because Vista is so ambitious in what it wants to do. Complex coding will always involve the “bug hunt”. The problem will now be … do you want that test bed to be your production network? Probably not, and most large rollouts won’t take place until after a service pack release, except for the companies that will be offered lucrative licensing terms to roll out early.
