Microsoft released its sales figures a few days ago and revealed a lower than forecast take up of Vista.  By any measure, this new operating system is in trouble – as it should be.  It gobbles computer resources for no commensurate productivity or enjoyment gain.

Why would small business retailers replace their perfectly stable and efficient Windows XP operating system with Vista and then pay for the required hardware updated?  They won’t and aren’t.  This is why Microsoft has reported lower than expected sales.

While our software is working in a bunch of sites running Vista, it’s not an operating system we urge our customers to install.

Microsoft pulling Windows XP from the market won’t force small business users to buy the resource hungry Vista.
