Windows After pushing the launch of Windows Vista to late 2006 for corporate customers and early 2007 for consumers, Microsoft insisted that quality, not timing, would dictate the product's release schedule. The company's loyalty to that guiding principle is soon going to be put to the test.

I'm trying to figure out what sort of business would want to upgrade to Windows Vista?

New PCs will come with Vista preinstalled, and XP will stop being supported. As always ...

just as they dropped Win 2000 support after the XP release... oh, wait, Win 2000 is still supported.

It will be a couple of years until XP support is dropped. Security and distance maintanance might be a reason for companys to migrate, but honestly, i don't think they will rush to Vista as they didn't rush to XP.

So what?
