XP on Life Support...Or Is It?
Dell is giving XP one more week to live, and if we're to believe some reports
from credible sources
, Microsoft might be thinking of extending the stay
of execution for the popular operating system, too.
Well, it only makes sense, doesn't it? Look, Vista's
a dud, especially in the enterprise. We can pretty much state that as fact
now. So why not give customers what they want -- XP -- for now and hope that
Windows 7 will fare better than Vista? Why is Microsoft so afraid to do something
that might actually make customers (and, in turn, a lot of partners) happy?
Maybe it isn't. We'll see.
