Well, Vista is providing number of compeling reasons for upgrade, one being better DRM protection and how well it works with Zune.
Not to mention that it is reasonably priced, you can have it for about the same price you pay for hardware required to run it.
And, I am sure it will have excellent spyware support, and variety of trojans, that will all work flawlessly as long as you passed WGA test.

I'll bet that those will be one of the few things you can still get to run even if you don't pass WGA.

Interesting article, and with the market as saturated as it is with PC's, I can see how it's not going to impact. I know many companies still using windows '98 !!! No one wants to switch until absolutely necessary.

I think I have a vista upgrade coupon too, wonder if it won't expire if I wait 2 years until they work the bugs out :D

So 40% of Microsoft's revenues now come from products other than Windows or Office. Great. Now tell us how much of their profit comes from products other than Windows and Office.
