Microsoft starts its hard sell

This week saw the launch of Microsoft’s latest version of Windows
Vista. For Bill Gates this is significant as it is his last big product
launch as full-time boss of Microsoft. For Microsoft this was a major
event as the Windows client OS accounts for 30% of their revenue and
60% of their operating income. Business analysts IDC forecast that
within the first year of shipment the new operating system will be
installed on 90 million computers worldwide.

Tanya comments:

‘We won’t be rushing out to buy Vista right away. Previous
editions have been riddled with bugs though hopefully Vista will be
more robust than its predecessors.’
