Gartner: companies should ignore Windows Vista 2008

Microsoft won't love it but analysts at Gartner state companies should wait to upgrade to Windows Vista until 2008 in order to be safe.
The majority of improvements in Vista, the update scheduled to arrive in 2006, will be security-related and most of this functionality "is available via third-party products today," Gartner analysts said in a research note published on Friday.

While Vista will "offer incremental, evolutionary improvements" over its predecessors, Windows XP users should "pursue a strategy of managed diversity," the analysts recommended. That means they should only bring in Vista on new machines and that not until 2008.
