USDOT bans use of Vista OS

Even the United States' Department of Transportation refuses to use Windows Vista. It's one thing that Microsoft is rejected by many consumers who were on the last straw, but the government as well? The USDOT cites incompatibility as the reason for the ban on Vista. Too many critical applications won't work on Vista.

Perhaps this should be a nice, blaring message to Microsoft. There were a little egotistical and forgot about the important aspect of things, working parts. The USDOT is considering Linux and/or Macs as an alternative that will run the same programs. Linux seems like what they should have been using all along seeing how unreliable every Windows platform is.
