Introduction: Windows Vista Ultimate One of the major landmarks in the recent history of Windows Operating Systems, this OS was released in January 2007. A solid 5 years after the previous Windows XP was launched worldwide, Microsoft came out with its successor. With an improved built-in support option, this new OS seeks to rectify the shortcomings of Windows XP.
What’s new about this operating system?
One of the major concerns with Windows XP was its sub-par security. In the continuously evolving cyber world, it becomes imperative to have robust security for your network. Windows Vista Ultimate, one of the several versions of this OS, tries to tackle this issue. The user switching to Windows Vista from the previous variant will witness a steep decline in the number of system crashes. Further, a host of upgrades await the new user. Many features from Windows XP have been adopted and improved upon. A new interface feels more engaging. Especially for notebook users, this new OS presents an array of options.
Windows Vista’s beefed-up security has been the talk of the town. It allows the users to access and run many applications without being the Administrator. It allows the user to smoothly navigate across different devices. The intrusive pop-up box asking ‘if you are the Administrator’, does not bother you anymore. The loopholes in security have been taken care of. Coming under the Trustworthy Computing initiative launched by Bill Gates, Windows Vista has a much-improved security design. The added security upgrades are visible in the new Internet Explorer 7 with an anti-phishing option. Windows Defender watches out for dangerous malware. This new OS allows encryption which works as an added layer of security for sensitive files.
Microsoft has done serious technical flexing on designing this user interface. This UI runs on Windows Aero and allows the famous translucent animation effect of Vista. A specifically designed Start button adds to the complete feel of the new UI. The integrated search allows you to search faster than the previous desktop-built search bars.
Further this Ultimate version of Windows Vista also allows the user to score some extra freebies in the form of access to some high-end applications like Windows Dreamscene. All you need to do is to earn the Ultimate Extras. So overall, this new operating system by Windows is a complete package with major security improvements and terrifically designed UI.
