Vista is not moving anywhere

[Image: Windows Vista]Many hardware manufacturers have been disappointed in the lack of sales spurred by Vista. Companies across the board are saying that there was no "Vista effect" and that Vista did nothing to spur the sales of new hardware. In fact, the helping hand is coming the other way.

The hardware is the only thing selling Vista. The growth in sales of Vista over XP is entirely based on the growth of the computer market in general. The only reason that Vista is even selling now is the fact that it is bundled with new computers. That also means that if people buy a computer only to reformat it for Linux, the computer itself tallied one more for Microsoft.

Note: this was reported first on March 30th, so this is not April Fools day trickery.
