You may be right on that since they're already elbow deep in Windows 7.

I still stick by my belief that Vista was only a temporary bridge that left out many of the new, revolutionary features that Microsoft initially said would be included but they couldn't nail down properly and still be ready for a suitable launch date.

XP runs everything for me fine, doesn't cost me money, and doesn't hog up resources...so I'm gonna keep using it for now.

We need to start a petition to get directx or similar working on Ubuntu. Then all would be great and right in the world. But regarding xp, if it aint broke why pay outrageous amounts of cash for something inferior. Yes inferior. No ip blocking working correctly and driver issues served on a silver plattter. No thanks I'll pass.

Everyone's talking about killing XP when a lot of big companies/corporations are still running Win2K Clients without issue. (And yes, XP is also used)

Microsoft is smart enough to know that if they really tried to push vista on the business world, they'd be laughed out the door
