It is going to be a hard sell when tech companies are cutting their workforce and the stock market is in the tank.

The last thing a company or really end users are going to worry aobut is a new operating system when they are unemployed and it cost $500 requiring high dollar hardware to run it...

Just my thoughts.

high dollar hardware?

Dude, The project lead on Windows 7 runs the OS on a 1 GHz Atom Processor with a gig of memory.

on top of that, I have sitting at my desk, a quad core intel machine with 4 gigs of memory and it cost me about 400 bucks to put together.
