[Techpowerup.com] Technology Analyst: Get Over Vista Hate
A reporter and technology analyst for the Washington Post recently took a rather strong point of view regarding Windows Vista and XP. He accepts that Vista has it's flaws, such as "steep hardware requirements, its strict anti-piracy measures, its sometimes-intrusive security measures, its incompatibility with some older products." However, he points out that the current market behavior, which is something along the lines of "don't upgrade until Vista gets better, and beg to keep XP on shelves" is not doing Vista or Microsoft any good. He points out that XP is not a historic monument in need of preservation, and is more like an old car: it's had a good run, but in view of some XP flaws when compared to Vista strongpoints, it's time to move on. The analyst also pointed out that fundamental supply/demand economics is keeping Vista from rising to greatness. As long as the market holds on to XP, and refuses to move on to Vista, software makers will not see a very good reason to adopt or support Vista, which causes most of the problems Vista has today.

Re: [Techpowerup.com] Technology Analyst: Get Over Vista Hate
hehe.. after playing with Vista Ultimate 64bit for my 2x2GB DDR2 testing lately, I'm growing to like Vista somewhat - but XP still has a strong place in my heart.
I think that reporter should write an article, telling software makers to get off their butt to provide greater support for Vista, to give us XP lovers a reason to move on
