Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

When did Microsoft start selling computer hardware for upgrades ?

I will let them sell me a mouse, or a keyboard, but I have never seen a Microsoft Processor or Microsoft Memory ?

Where can I get a pricelist for these please ?

Reread what I wrote. Until recently, Microsoft received some money from virtually every PC sold in the US if not the world, regardless of who made it or sold it. Only recently has anyone been able to buy a PC without buying a new Windows license--whether they used it or not.

But you knew that, so why harass me about it?

In that case, you are correct, I was harassing you, as the original post was worded in such a way, it made the reader think you meant Microsoft were also supplying hardware upgrades. Sorry, I picked you up wrong.
