Wow! Avowed Microsoft fanboy, Chris Pirillo, is dumping Windows Vista and reverting to Windows XP!
Iâ€™m â€œupgradingâ€ from Windows Vista to Windows XP.
I stand by my original assertion that the shipping version of this OS is late beta, at best.
This is a serious blow for Microsoft – the fact that someone so publicly aligned to them would rubbish their latest OS cannot be good. I wonder does this mean Chris is withdrawing his offer to market Vista for Microsoft for $1m!!!
It looks like Steve Ballmer’s assertions that Vista’s poor sales were due to excessive piracy were a bit off the mark. No-one is going to want to pirate a duff OS.
A more likely explanation now (given Chris’ recent experiences with Vista) is that Vista’s poor sales are due to it being a lame duck operating system.
