I was invited to the Vista and Windows 2007 launch today in London and, if you’re interested, I’ll be posting my thoughts and a couple of mini-podcasts over on my small business blog.

The next episode of SmallBizPod will be with you on Thursday this week.

    yeah that’s a big question.
    How will it affect business interconeection?
    What if we migrate too fast and our clients don’t? Or the other way around?

    As for us (product design and virtual video firm), it will be a matter of performance. If our pc’s currently work at a 60% of their capabilities, but with Vista they will work at 40%, having us to invest more $$$ to keep up with the needed power, probably just a few administrative computers will migrate and the rest stick to xp.

    cheers, and great p’cast (but u know that already 😉 ), i’ve been listening for almost a year now.

    If I were a betting man I reckon most small businesses will only upgrade to Vista when they next upgrade their PC stock.

    Hey – nice to discover a UK based blogger who’s into similar stuff to me. I’m teetering on the verge of leaving a salaried job to do my own thing – so I think your stuff may come in useful.

    Hi Sara, good to hear from you and I’ve just pinged you on MyBlogLog’s messaging system. Hope SmallBizPod can help push you over the edge in a good way 🙂
