Etymologically speaking, the word Vista means ‘view’ or ‘prospect’. This leads us to the first major feature of Windows Vista and a big advantage of it over Windows XP, that is its sophisticated appearance. It does not at all prove to be an eye sore of any sort.
Even the colour scheme of the Windows is a more attractive one. It is easier on the eyes and a more balanced one.
There is a wide range of options and that too which are easy to use. The Views tab gives you a host of new options.
Viewing pictures is also much fun – the slide show gives you a more pleasure because of its sophisticated look. There are more tools which give you a wide range of options like the Snap Viewer, Microsoft Picture Manager.
The most positive aspect of Vista is its security. The virus trouble doesn’t hold you down because you are the master; you have to authorize the access. My PC has not been down with the virus ‘fever’ ever since I installed Vista. We can safely say the virus attacks won’t be frequent unlike Windows XP.
Another bonus given by Microsoft is the ‘Start Search’ option. So now you don’t have to locate the programme required – this saves your precious time.
One thing that has been troubling me ever since I installed Vista is that I have not been able to use the PCTV card on my system.
When analyzed from the point of view of the system speed – we can say it is a bit slower than Windows XP. But the speed does not serve as a deterrent.
