Reality is starting to sink in

As it turns out, businesses are thinking twice about charging off to install Vista. Something about slower performance and no better security, not to mention various compatibility issues.

Monopolies result in poorer products, higher prices, and slower innovation. That's a basic law of economics, and it was not repealed for the benefit of Messrs. Gates and Balmer.

It's nice to see that the triumph of marketing over quality (Microsoft's basic business strategy) has some finite limits after all.
