Windows For any given release of Windows, there are companies that choose to skip it. But when the company is Intel, it's a big deal. Intel's IT department "found no compelling case" for upgrading to Windows Vista.

I am not a supporter of Microsoft

I heavily dislike Microsoft. But something does not seem right here. ZDnet reported that the New York Times reported that the Inquirer found evidence that Intel won't upgrade to Vista. This all sounds fine but if you read the Inquirer it says.

"ACCORDING TO A memo circulating a few weeks ago, it looks like Intel is taking a wise decision and avoiding the Broken OS entirely. Yes, Intel is not going to use Vista on its corporate machines... ever."

I don't really think that is a reliable source of information. If you read further into the Times article you come across a proper quote from Intel.

"An Intel spokesman said the company was testing and deploying Vista in certain departments, but not across the company."

Which doesn't mean they are going to skip Vista just that they are not using it widely yet. A common thing for large corporations to do.
