Wow... the Vista users on this forum must live in their on enclosed bubble of reality.
Maybe these folks are counting on the slow transition to Vista as people buying new computers get it included with the new PC purchase... I can see that happening. But I just don't see droves of people rushing out to buy retail copies of Vista "just because"... to replace their current working copies of XP. Numerous studies have shown that general consumers and commercial entities are currently holding pat with XP and other older M$ O/S choices... hence M$ delimma with keeping XP going for now.
I find it quite humorous the tizzy folks get into just because they want more people to swing over to the Vista side in the name of better DX10 gaming.
Isn't it painfully obvious that "gaming" isn't the only reason why the general populous buys computers (and operating systems). If they want to push the Vista agenda, they'd be better to focus on something nifty that the average joe REALLY wants if they expect them to fork over another $150 to $400 for a new O/S.
