Why did Windows Vista take so long to launch?

When popular operating systems like Mac and Ubuntu Linux release a new version of their OS about once or twice a year, respectively, 5 years to the fruition of Vista sounds like a very long time for the successor of XP. And there were good reasons for that: in 2002, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates launched the "Trustworthy Computing" initiative. In short, this entailed a sharp shift in focus towards security in all software created by Microsoft. This explains both why Windows Vista was released so long after XP, and why Vista is the most secure version of Windows out of the box. Upcoming tutorials will examine in detail safety and security in Windows Vista.

Switching to Windows Vista

Users of Windows 95 and later versions of Windows will have little problem getting started with Vista; but a myriad of new features will appear as they use Microsoft's latest operating system. This website is devoted to helping users of Windows XP and previous versions of Windows to make a smooth transition to Vista. Our tutorials will focus on basic Vista tasks, like using the built-in programs like Windows Internet Explorer, as well as customizing, maintaining, and optimizing Vista for your everyday usage. We also welcome any feedback that allows us to improve our tutorials, whether from prospective switchers, or existing Vista users.

Since most of our tutorials assume some knowledge of Windows, they are ideally suited for users upgrading from XP to Vista. Meet Windows Vista. Further down the page are listed our Windows 7 tutorials, the new version of Windows.
