Vista Business Sales Lukewarm

Maybe Microsoft should have shipped the consumer version of Vista first. After all, home users were the first to buy speakers, CD-ROMs and high-res graphics, and I dare you to find a corporate PC that is the match of a 12-year-old's gaming machine. Many of these pre-teens will move to Vista on day one, with some standing in line at Circuit City to be the very first.

Corporate types are different, and for a good many it will be a year to a year-and-a-half until Vista upgrades begin in earnest, at least according to Endpoint Technologies.
