Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell has taken the unusual step - for a PC vendor of its size - of toning down its sales pitch for Microsoft's Vista operating system and warning businesses of the migration challenges that lie ahead for them. The step is particularly unusual because one of the issues the hardware vendor is warning business about is the extra hardware they will need to buy.

Hi! This is a friendly reminder from Dell. Just so you know, if your business plans on paying Microsoft tons of money to upgrade to Vista, you should also consider paying us tons of money too. Because, um. . .you need more hardware or we'll make something break on you. That's not a threat. We're your friend! Therefore, it's a warning ;) .

Vista seems to work in Dell's favor here ;) .
