Vista in "less good product" shocker

,----[ Quote ]
| In a remarkable and some might say all-too-fleeting 
| display of honesty, a senior Microsoft executive has 
| branded Vista a "less good product".


What If Windows 7 Flops?

,----[ Quote ]
| What if Windows 7 is released and no one bites? What 
| if Windows 7 performs no better than previous 
| iterations? What if businesses and users decide to 
| sit on the sidelines and wait for cloud-based 
| alternatives? What if they decide that rather than 
| refresh with a Windows machine that they go with a 
| Mac or a Linux machine (at least they would be 
| buying)? What if businesses decide to migrate more 
| to thin clients and cloud-based applications that 
| don't require a full-featured operating system like 
| Windows 7?



Opinion: Your XP-to-Windows 7 upgrade path: Buy a new PC


After Vista flop, Indian CIOs not open to new Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, the worldâs largest software maker, may be throwing parties for
| potential customers to test its Windows 7 operating system to be launched in
| October, but many chief information officers (CIOs) are not joining the party
| yet.
| Reliance Communications, Asian Paints, Essar Group and some other companies will
| wait to see how efficient the new product of Microsoft is before shifting to it,
| after the Vista failed to deliver on the promise of a faster and sleeker
| operating system.
| âIâm in no hurry to rip and replace my existing OS (operating system),ââ said
| Manish Choksi, chief information officer (CIO) at Asian Paints which has 2,500
| desktops and about 100 servers.
