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.

Do you bother to use your brain?

I never said XP outsells Vista or all people don't want Vista.

It's just most - but not even nearly all - of them don't want to buy a dated version and therefore go with Vista. No one really gets stunned by it like in MS's campaign.

All the time.

Funny. How do you presume to speak for most?

No one really gets stunned by it like in MS's campaign.

And how did you manage the leap of logic that "no one" really gets stunned? You're quite the projectionist.

Because the discussion you two are having off-topic and of personal nature. (Read: Full of personal insuts)

If it makes you feel any better, your friend got a -1 too.
