Microsoft Vista and Partner Reputations

July 18, 2008

As a Microsoft PartnerRegistered Member, Onsite Computer is similar to many other partners.   When Microsoft produces new products, partners are provided with sample software and marketing information.  In an effort maintain a knowledgeable presence in a competitive market, partners sample software and digest marketing materials for sales presentations to clients.

Through empirical learning, I coined the disclaimer: “The new software by Microsoft will be great after they release Service Pack 1.”  Historically, Service Pack 1 addresses issues in the initial release.  It is a monumental task to design new software for use on infinite combinations and permutations of hardware.  SP 1 was the bench mark for new software adaptation in business environments.

At the Partner Conference in Houston, Brad BrooksCorporate Vice President of Windows Consumer Products, repeated Microsoft’s mantra of the past few months – the Vista of today is very different from the Vista that Microsoft first shipped two years ago.  It may be safe to assume that every partner would love to face clients and assert with confidence that today’s Vista is mo’ betta’ than yesterday’s Vista.

In an effort to support and promote Microsoft’s belief in Vista, Brooks announced the Vista Compatibility Site to verify hardware and software compatibility with Vista.  Additionally, Brooks touted the new Windows Vista Small Business Assurance program which is also designed to inspire confidence in the new Vista.  Included in the program is free telephone support and a new Vista Small Business Assurance web site with access to online tools and support.

In closing, Brooks proclaimed the new “Vista is a good product.”  Mr. Brooks, we ALL hope so.
