Anthony Doesburg: 'Wait and see' approach to Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| But that doesn't mean everyone who's buying Vista is using it. In fact, XP 
| and the even older Windows 2000 remain the operating systems of choice at 
| most large organisations.  
| The reason is conservatism within the IT departments of big outfits; a home 
| user suffers inconvenience if a new operating system has a few teething 
| problems but a business or government department could be knocked out of 
| action if the changeover goes wrong.   


Surveys show Vista struggling one year on



Georgia Tech - Software for Staff

| OIT and the Georgia Tech IT Community do not recommend the Microsoft Vista 
| operating system for most users at this time. We advise that you work with 
| your departmental technical support resources when considering a move to the 
| Vista operating system.   


Users Demand Upgrade from Vista To XP

,----[ Quote ]
| Admittedly, I find myself amused with the latest Vista sales numbers, as they 
| seem to forget how many of those same people are disgusted once they break 
| the seal and want to take Vista back.  
| I know a number of repair techs, most of them running smaller shops and all 
| of them are reporting people asking for "their XP back." 


Vista sales slow despite record MS profit

,----[ Quote ]
| The sales rate of Microsoft's Windows Vista is gradually slowing down as the 
| operating system reaches the one-year anniversary of its release to 
| businesses, according to the company's latest financial results.  


Nine burning questions about how Vista is really doing

| Instead, there's so much spin   -- from Microsoft,  from rivals such
| as Apple Inc.,  from market analysts pushing research and more research
| -- it would even leave Sasha Cohen dizzy. Here's our attempt to unravel
| this puzzle-shrinkwrapped-in-a-mystery.
