Microsoft Windows Vista Tutorial Microsoft Windows Vista Tutorial

computers with DOS. Now there are much more choices for users.

Choosing the software you need, is one of the important decisions. Assuming that you have decided to the shop for operating system for your computer, you will need to decide whether you want to use the Mac or a Windows operating system. Both perform similar tasks, though they are different in their appearance and functionality. Many users think Mac OS X is more stable, secure and easier to use than Windows. This debate aside, Windows is compatible to more number of gadgets people need to connect with computers, such as mobile phones, sat-nav systems and portable media players to name just a few.

Those who choose Vista will need to pick the version that suits them best. For consumers, Vista comes in three different forms: Home Basic, Home Premium and Ultimate. Upgrades from XP are possible. There is only one version of the latest Mac OS X (Leopard), which is bundled with all new Macs. You can also upgrade an older version of OS X to Leopard. If you move from Vista Home Basic through to Ultimate, you will get more features. Like Home Basic does not come with the new aero screen appearance of the Premium and Ultimate versions. Similarly, only Vista Ultimate ships with Windows Bit Locker Drive Encryption to encrypt your private data and Shadow Copy for easy back-up.

MS office is another utility without which most users cannot live. Buying Office packaged with a new computer is cheaper than buying it later off the shelf. By the way, there are many applications (like OpenOffice) that do a similar job to Office -- and some of them are online rather than installed on your machine. For email and as a replacement for Microsoft Outlook, users can have the Vista mail program included with all versions of Vista. Free alternatives include Thunderbird or web-based email such as Gmail or Hotmail.

Which operating system are you using?

Why Switch to Windows Vista
In addition to hype there are some tangible reasons to upgrade and or switch over to Windows Vista. I can recount only some of them. Start from the appearance.
