  1. The XP versions that are outselling Vista are probably to users that bought PC’s with Vista pre-installed and now want to upgrade to XP. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”raspberry” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Obviously those figures don’t take into account the people buying Vista on a New machine or Mac users who will wait and upgrade their machine when Leopard is released. That said, Windows users massively outnumber Mac users so either a hell of a lot of people aren’t getting vista in any fashion or Vista requires people to upgrade their hardware just to run or that “PC’s” have just become disposable. Regardless it’s hardly glowing for Vista.

    The fact that people are still paying for XP is probably the most telling. It’s either people with Vista on new machines who are reverting – not good for Vista. Or people running something prior to XP who are upgrading. In the case of the latter, if Vista was any good then they would surely skip XP – unless there hardware couldn’t supoort it. Of course if there hardware couldn’t support vista and they’re not running XP you have to wonder why they’re changing now and paying for XP.
