British Agency Tells Schools to Avoid Vista

Richard Thurston writes on C|Net News:

The British government's schools computer agency has warned that deploying Vista carries too much risk and that its benefits are unclear.

The British Educational Communications and Technology Agency said Wednesday that it "strongly recommends" schools do not deploy Microsoft's latest operating system within the next 12 months.

In a further dig at Microsoft, the agency asserts that there are no "must-have" features in Vista and that "technical, financial and organizational challenges associated with early deployment currently make this (Vista) a high-risk strategy."
