    Strange choice indeed. The costs and complexities of something on this scale must be huge, can't really understand why you'd go through the pain for Vista when it's about to be replaced.

    First-time Vista users will discover added support for data encryption, a new Windows Explorer, upgraded icons and navigation structure. There are also graphical replications of clock, calendar, weather and Outlook mail functions.


    Thats some good reason to upgrade

    Governments work very slowly.

    We're still using XP in work and about to change all the IT equipment. I asked if that meant we'd get Windows 7 instead of Vista.
    The reply:
    "Well, we've only just finished checking compatibility with Vista, so that'll likely be rolled out with the new PCs. We haven't started checking Windows 7 yet."
