| Major software updates are always disruptive, and with as many as
| six separate SKUs for the U.S. market alone, Windows Vista will be
| no different. As if the launch plans for Vista weren't confusing
| enough, Microsoft execs have played up the steep hardware requirements
| of the operating system's bells and whistles, prompting many IT managers
| to wonder whether the upgrade might signal a jumping-off point for shops
| that have grown tired of life under Redmond's collective thumb.
