Texas Hates Vista?

We’ve all read countless articles about Windows Vista. Unfortunate for Microsoft, their operating system isn’t liked by many. That said, we’ve never heard of a state’s government basically banning their employees from using Vista until now.

The State of Texas added a rider to their budget requiring written authorization before buying Windows Vista. This rider would affect any state body in Texas with the exception of public schools. Their budget is expected to pass this week.

“We have a lot of problems with the Vista program.” “It had a lot of bugs. It takes up a lot of memory. It’s not compatible with other equipment, and it’s supposed to be an upgrade from the XP program that is being used by state agencies, and it’s not,” stated Texas Senator Hinojosa.

Naturally, Microsoft is very disappointed and is trying to have the language in the budget removed.
