Hardware, Embedded Systems The head of PC maker Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, has hit out at Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system, saying that the 'entire industry' was disappointed by it. Few buyers have purchased new PCs specifically for Vista, Acer's chief says "The entire industry is disappointed by Windows Vista," the head of the world's fourth-biggest PC maker told the Financial Times Deutschland in its online edition on Monday. Never before had a new version of Windows done so little to boost PC sales, he said. "And that's not going to change in the second half of this year," Mr Lanci said. "I really don't think that someone has bought a new PC specifically for Vista."

I can talk about my case. I sold 50 windows XP Home Editions OEM in the past 4 months and just 2 vistas because the customers were almost idiots. I have explained to one of vista customers that your graphics card will not work correctly because their were no drivers for it, but he insisted to install vista ( His grahics card was with quad ports Matrox QID low profile, 800$).
2nd customer with vista had vista previously on his laptop and his hard disk became defective, while no recovery disks supplied to him from sony.
If you have P4 it would become PII immediately with vista.
