Windows Business PC buyers are still overwhelmingly opting for XP, computer giant HP has revealed. Yet at the same time, Microsoft is claiming that Vista is selling faster than XP ever did ... so where's the truth? HP, which is the world's number one computer maker, has explained how Microsoft comes up with these dubious statistics.

As I can speak for ThyssenKrupp Steel we are still using AND buying XP-powered desktop computers from our business partner HP. They will ship the desktops with Vista too but we decided to stay with XP for the next time. So they reassembled the pre-configured PCs (and notebooks btw) with XP+SP2.
The advantage is still the usability and our customized software runs very steady under Windows XP.

Well it is only a question of time... but I can underline HP's statement.
