[access-uk] Re: *** SPAM *** FW: windows vista article


I also think that I will not be going to Windows Vista when it comes out in the New Year. From the sound of this article I will be holding on as long as I cam to Windows XP. It will probably be another six or so years before they stop the updates for Windows XP so I think we're safe enough for a while.

Well, i don't think I'll be in a hurry to go over to Vista. I've heard that it's very graphic intensive with its 3-D desktop they have planned and 3-D folders I hear.


I'm not sure how that'll work with magnification and, I don't wanna go down the "relying soley on speech" route to be honest.

I don't know. There's no upgrade for zoomtext that'll cover vista yet so, I don't see the point in me being concerned right now.

I think I'll  be sticking with XP for a few years to come *smile*.

I have lopped off the original forwarded message to prevent a very long
message. I think the purely visual aspects of Vista could prove challenging
to those who want to work visually, but it'll be interesting to see how
magnification users fare. Maybe several lenses might be used simultaneously
to home-in on areas of interest to a user.


I don't know how many people in the work place will be adopting this very
busy, multi-information approach to their computing but it could well mark a
further demarcation between the way we use Windows and others use it.


Vince, no one can deny your adaptability in computing in past times, and
very interesting you had Gem which I never saw in action. Of course
standardisation on PC/MS DOS put an end to the near anarchy of
proliferation of operating systems at that time, which was, I think, crucial
for the PC industry to grow, whatever we might think of Microsoft.


I don't, by the way, underestimate the adaptability of many VI people; it
will be interesting though to see how things pan out.
