What do people really think of Vista – Mojave

Filed under: Windows Vista — jamesone111 @ 10:23 pm

Unless this is the first post you’ve read here you’ll know that I like Windows Vista, not because I work for Microsoft but on it’s own merits. (I’m sure I’ve said before I work for Microsoft because I like the products and the thinking behind them , not the other way round).

You’ll also know that I’m convinced that a lot (not all, but a lot) of negative perception about Vista is down to ignorance, and problems of a bad press.

Someone had a bright idea. Lets take people who don’t know Vista and ask them about their view of it. Then lets show them Vista and see what they think; but lets not tell them it is Vista. Lets tell them they’re looking at a future Microsoft OS codenamed …. Mojave.

CNET had a teaser about this story last week , but the website has only gone live in the last few hours. IT Wire has the story, so does Daily Tech.
