MS Windows Vista Home Premium
Advantages: The features
Disadvantages: some games dont work
Before I buy anything to do with my computer, I always read reviews about the product, and when I read reviews about Vista, it was a mixture of both bad and good, so based on the good, I upgraded from XP. When I first started using, I knew instantly that it was a frsh operating system that was much better than all others before it.
Of course with any new operating system, it took me a while to navigate around it, but when I got the hang of it, I soon realised that it had more features than ever before. One thing that you can do is set up a sidebar on the edge of your desktop, which includes a clock face, mini notepad, countdown timer and my personal favourite, and ebay undater which can let you view items you are bidding on, which I find very useful. I suppose I can see where people are coming from when they say that Vista isnt worth it, as the only downside is that many game developers didnt anticipate that Microsoft would produce a new operating system so early after the last one, so many games dont work on Vista, which can be a bit annoying. For me, this is the only disadvantage as so far, I havent found any others. The media centre is better than ever and allows you to do more things, and has a bigger library for both your music and videos, which is a change. Im glad I upgraded.
Summary: A great op
