Microsoft will implement the first of the policy changes for its Gold Certified (top-tier) OEM partners within the next couple of weeks. The company will streamline downgrade-rights policies and procedures for the broader channel somewhat later, said John Ball, general manager of Microsoft's US Systems Group.

After six months Vista is already running on more desktops that Linux has managed in ten years.

Yup, if only Linux could 'flop' like that then we might actually see some competition ...
