This is almost funny, not only that, but I hope it’s the beginning of a
trend because Vista and IE7 are and always will be a bad idea. They’d be
well advised to go with a free distribution
of Linux
instead of Windows and Open Office instead of Office 2007

Microsoft
Vista, IE7 Banned By U.S. DOT

An anonymous reader writes "According to a memo
being reported on by Information week
, the US Department of
Transportation has issued a moratorium on upgrading Microsoft
products. Concerns over costs and compatability issues has lead the
federal agency to prevent upgrades from XP to Vista, as well as to
stop users from moving to IE 7 and Office 2007. As the article
says,’In a memo to his staff, DOT chief information officer Daniel
Mintz says he has placed "an indefinite moratorium" on the upgrades as
"there appears to be no compelling technical or business case for
upgrading to these new Microsoft software products. Furthermore, there
appears to be specific reasons not to upgrade."’"
