Either that stance has changed, or they're admitting one month of XP sales (and remember, you can basically only buy it from OEMs right now, so with new computers!) will be equivalent to almost three months of Vista sales. Says something either way, doesn't it?4 commentsLeave a comment

I still don't know /anyone/ running vista, outside of a test box in our lab...
wolfwings - 06:53 pm - Yeah, same here.
Hell, I've personally met someone that bought a new laptop that came pre-installed with Vista... and couldn't get the included software for the built-in hardware to fully function even after spending over two months trying. Store wouldn't take it back either.
So they bought another laptop, moved the RAM upgrades and what-not across themselves, and have the Vista 'laptop chassis' sitting on a shelf in their closet now as a reminder to never get Vista.

...there's PS3 games*cough*interactive Blu-Ray movies available.
But you can't even get video-card drivers to support most of the features that were popular under XP yet, like SLI and other essoteric functions. When the OS itself has worse support for video-card features on bleeding-edge hardware than Linux... Houston, we have a problem!
