Consumers Voting with Their Downgrades
Vista has more features, and is far newer than XP. And it actually costs money
to remove the new Vista and install the seven-year-old XP.
So why would over
a third of new PC customers go through the trouble and expense of downgrading
to XP? Because XP works!
There are many people that like Vista -- even some that really like it (though
I have yet to hear the word "love" used). But for way too many, Vista
is slow, unpredictable and incompatible. Microsoft needs a Manhattan Project
to fix or replace Vista tout de suite. After all, as Bill Gates used
to say, "It's only software."

Hopefully, Microsoft will be reading.
