Intel Also Rejects Vista

Yeesh, this is kind of ugly. The "tel" (or just the "Intel," depending on how you read it) in Wintel is saying no to Vista.

There's really nothing left to say here, but we're sort of enjoying looking at the Vista car wreck from the traffic jam on the (hello, early '90s phrase) information superhighway.

Suggestions to Microsoft, which finally (mostly) killed XP yesterday: Bring back XP, get Windows 7 down to being manageable, and let us all forget about Vista. In other words, listen to most of your customers and partners. Please.
