[News] Windows Lacks Excuse for Upgrades

Vista: Where are the killer apps?

,----[ Quote ]
| Then there are the vendors who say Vista is irrelevant to them and
| their customers. Officials with Microsoft CRM rival Salesforce.com
| said they have no plans to tweak their software-as-a-service
| offerings to take advantage of Vista or its Internet Explorer 7 interface.
| "Vista is completely the wrong approach, from our perspective,"
| said Kendall Collins, senior vice president of marketing with 
| Salesforce.com. "We are not doing anything about Vista. We are
| ideologically opposed to it. And we haven't heard much from our
| customers about IE 7. We are not finding many people using it.
| We will support whatever our customers demand."
