Keen to get more business users upgrading their computers to Vista, Microsoft has launched a website aimed at giving corporate customers reasons to "proceed with confidence" when considering switching to the new operating system.

According to an internal newsletter: "Some customers may be waiting to adopt Windows Vista because they've heard rumours about device or application compatibility issues, or because they think they should wait for a service pack release."

"To help partners and customers get the real story, Microsoft has created a comprehensive set of fact-rich materials illustrating how Windows Vista is ready today and tomorrow."

However, very little is know about the site's contents due to those who attempt to register being faced with signing a non-disclosure agreement.

Although Microsoft is refusing to comment on its contents, magazine Australian PC did write that "Vista service pack 1 is, in the company’s own words, designed to address "deployment blockers and high impact issues", suggesting that until the release of SP1, you will have to contend with… deployment blockers and high impact issues."
