Hardware, Embedded Systems The head of PC maker Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, has hit out at Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system, saying that the 'entire industry' was disappointed by it. Few buyers have purchased new PCs specifically for Vista, Acer's chief says "The entire industry is disappointed by Windows Vista," the head of the world's fourth-biggest PC maker told the Financial Times Deutschland in its online edition on Monday. Never before had a new version of Windows done so little to boost PC sales, he said. "And that's not going to change in the second half of this year," Mr Lanci said. "I really don't think that someone has bought a new PC specifically for Vista."

I own IT Consulting firm and recieved a call today from a client who was planning on purchasing 245 Acer computers for his company after reading about the comments he felt it was Acer who couldn't handle Vista correctly and now want to purchase HP desktops. I know 245 pc's are not the largest amount but all it seems Acers negitive comments did is drive more potential pc sales away.
