Web View | Print View

by Chris Lundin

In January 2007,after many years of development, Microsoft released its new operating system, Vista, to general distribution. See Microsoft's information on this new product.

IT Services staff and others on campus have used this software since before it was released. Many months after its release, a number of campus users are using Vista without problems. However, if you are considering either upgrading or purchasing a new computer with Vista pre-loaded, please note the following:

All Essential Stanford Software applications now work with Vista.

IT Services has put together a Vista Web page with pertinent information.

If you're interested in Vista, please discuss your specific situation with your local computing support staff.
