Microsoft Predicted to Back Away from Vista


Sponsored Links
326w ago - When it comes to technology debacles, every major company has a few (remember the Newton?), but right now one of the top spots has to go to Windows Vista, Microsoft's clunky operating system that has IT shops and consumers desperately clutching at XP for as long as they can.

Jason Hiner over at Tech Republic thinks there may be a light at the end of the Vista tunnel; he predicts IT shops and consumers will have a chance within the next year to upgrade to a cleaner, more modular version of Windows Vista under the Windows 7 moniker.

It won't be a completely new OS but rather a more streamlined version of Vista. He also suggests the pricing for consumers will be lower in an effort to win back those who are turning to Macs.

This could be another step by Microsoft toward shedding cumbersome release cycles and creating software that can be updated every year or so via a subscription model. Hiner lays out a nice case, and as a consumer who once was stuck with a laptop running Windows ME, I have to hope that before the third strike (Vista being the second), Microsoft can score a hit.

That makes no sense. Who installs Vista then decides to throw away their computer then fork out fat cash for a whole new Apple system? That costs way more then a PC even with Vista Ultimate?

Those who move to Apple do so because they want to regardless of Vista. So what's going to bring them back? A better Vista? So they'll throw away system #2 then buy another PC?

Yeah, no sense.
