Vista a Dud, Says Acer’s Lanci

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.”
