Microsoft plans to end most sales of Windows XP on June 30,
despite a deep reluctance by many business and individuals about
moving to Vista. InfoWorld believes such an expensive,
time-consuming shift with problematic benefits should not be
forced on Windows users, so we have decided to rally XP users to
demand that XP be kept available.
I can see two possible explanations for the backlash against Vista: (a) Vista really does suck; and/or (b) the mainstream PC industry has gotten so conservative that anything new and different from XP was bound to be rejected.
