PC satisfaction down: Windows Vista to blame?

,----[ Quote ]
| Claes Fornell, who heads up the ASCI at the University of Michigan, tells
| TGDaily that he thinks Windows Vista is playing a role in the trend -- in
| part because of the experiences of PC users who have tried to upgrade older
| computers to the new operating system.

Vista: DOA in the Enterprise

,----[ Quote ]
| The really bad news for Microsoft: the number of business PCs running Windows
| XP increased from 2007 to 2008—three times the increase in the percentage of
| PCs running Vista.
|
| Perhaps worse: The majority of businesses waiting for Vista—meaning those
| running older Windows versions—migrated to XP instead. Microsoft had counted
| on Windows 2000 and older versions to go to Vista. The newest Windows saw
| some conversion, but XP got much more.

Tasting Better With Linux

| Enter Ubuntu. Using the 32-bit LiveCD, it immediately picked up the external
| adapter, and was able to connect to the hotel’s WiFi. I flattened Mepis and
| installed Ubuntu. I will give myself some time using the new system first,
| but I will probably flatten Vista and rid myself of that headache.

|
| As a traveler who spends up to two-thirds of my time using hotel networks,
| Vista’s continuing wireless weaknesses make it entirely too unreliable for my
| uses. I cannot recommend Vista to anyone who connects to multiple networks.
| It is just not good enough.

Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
|
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
|
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.
