UK Gov't Agency Tells Schools "Don't upgrade to Vista"

The Brits say no to Vista

PC World reports that the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (BECTA) is telling British schools that they should not upgrade to Microsoft's Vista operating system and Office 2007 productivity suite.

Schools might consider using Vista if rolling out all-new infrastructure, but should not introduce it piecemeal alongside other versions of Windows, or upgrade older machines, said the agency, which is responsible for advising British schools and colleges on their IT use.

"We have not had sight of any evidence to support the argument that the costs of upgrading to Vista in educational establishments would be offset by appropriate benefit," it said.
