Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.

Intel & Vista

Some time ago, there was a bit of a furore when it was discovered that Intel, the largest manufacturer of processors for computers, had offloaded a large quantity of processors claimed by the makers to be "Vista-capable"; it seems that the reverse was the case leaving I presume, a certain quantity of egg on Intel's corporate face.

Now according to this article in TechRepublic, it appears that Intel has no intention of using Vista; the company stated that it found "no compelling reason to upgrade to Vista."

In the comments by readers in TechRepublic there are some understanding and sensible explanations as to why this might be so.

Nevertheless, I am sure my readers will understand when I say that there are many compelling reasons for Intel not to "upgrade" to Vista!

Intel the next time...
