Users want notebooks with XP

Instead of Vista at the same price


One of the biggest Austrian retailers/etailers has confirmed that they sell more notebooks with XP than with Vista. The price of a machine with XP and Vista is the same and the end users still wants the one with a five year old operating system.

The answer is rather simple, besides the fact that Vista looks really handsome, it drains more battery and you can lose 30 minutes from you precious two an a half hours by getting Vista on the machine.

This is definitely not a good sign for Microsoft, but then again they already sold 60 million copies and we are sure that the majority of notebooks that companies plan to sell in Q4 will have Vista and Vista only, on them.
