Onsite Computer and Microsoft Windows Vista Compatibility Issues

June 12, 2008

From Onsite’s experience since the release of Microsoft Windows 3.0 through the release of Vista, one of the major advantages of PCs running Microsoft operating systems is the plethora of hardware and software choices available to users.  The resulting infinite combinations and permutations of hardware and software options has also always been one of the main problems with successful Windows installations. 

Successful Windows installations generally depend on compatibility between the infinite combinations of available hardware and software.  This is a monumental task for all involved in the manufacture of hardware (video displays, network interfaces, USB devices) as well as the publication of software (Windows and third party publishers of items like drivers, virus protection, browsers, ect.).  PCs give users several choices; however PCs also give users compatibility concerns from software and hardware that weren’t specifically designed to work together.

Generally the release of the first service pack from Microsoft, in addition to the release of updated drivers from hardware and software vendors, addressed many of the incompatibility issues discovered after the initial release of the operating system.  Hopefully Microsoft Windows Vista SP1, as well as updated drivers and third-party application updates, have addressed the majority of SNAFUs with the initial release of Vista.  Only time will tell.  Stay tuned as our clients and Onsite continue the Vista compatibility odyssey as the sale of XP is scheduled to expire at the end of this month.
