At the university I work for, we required our users to install SP1 for Vista. Nearly a quarter of the machines (Newish Dells, HPs, Toshibas, etc) failed to upgrade properly. Either black screens or infinite restarts. It was a disaster that we still haven't recovered from, especially since we don't service student machines.....
hence the reason i run linux. simple, elegant, allows me control of my device..oh and no viruses or spyware.
at my work, i manage 70 PC's by myself and i started rolling Vista out to them over the summer. got to 7 machines and had to revert them becaue of hardware/software compatibilty problems and PC's running slow.
We have a citrix server and i have SERIOUSLY thought about switching us to linux and running Citrix for their Windows applications..
