Windows Vista has finally been launched
and is available to purchase from your local computer store. As part of
the beta test group for Vista I’ve been running it on my various computers
for the past year and I have to say that since the RTM release in November
the only issues I’ve had is the lack of drivers, but all that changed today.
Most companies have been holding off
on releasing their drivers till the launch today, even microsoft have been
holding out on a few extra fixes as starting my laptop today it downloaded
about 8 hotfixes from the windows update website. One thing I have
missed on my T43 Thinkpad is the fingerprint reader and the new updated
software for that was released today also, infact nearly all the typical
thinkpad software extras have been updated for Vista and released today.
So if you have a Thinkpad and your interested
in running Vista you will be pleased to know that you won’t lose any of
the extra features like the fingerprinter reader, client security system,
hotkeys, presentation manager, power manager etc. They all seem to be working
