Windows Lots of Windows-related news today. Firstly, responding to customer demand, Dell has restarted selling new PCs with Windows XP installed on them. Secondly, Microsoft software will sell for just USD 3 in some parts of the world in an attempt to double the number of global PC users (probably not at all unrelated to this interesting figure). Lastly, Vista may only be three months old in the retail marketplace, but Microsoft is already seeking participants in the beta testing program for the next version of Windows Media Center, codenamed Fiji. Update: Microsoft denied the sales figures in China to News.com.

Its delayed and the fact that 99% of those living in the third world won't have the cash (or the justified reason) to hand over for the higher markup that Apple Mac's have.

Leopard is delayed, what, three months? And Vista was delayed how long? Tiger is already as good as Vista so the delay hardly actually matters. Apple do not wish to enter the third world market, if they did, they would make an OS that wouldn't suck, and didn't cripple you to running no more than three programs at a time.
