Over One Third of Vista Machines Have Been Downgraded to XP

Illustration for article titled Over One Third of Vista Machines Have Been Downgraded to XP

Sometimes one damning statistic can put it all into perspective. Through a survey of 3,000 computers, it was found that 35% of those systems built to run Vista had been downgraded (by computer vendors or users) to run XP. Keep in mind, this metric wouldn't include systems like mini-laptops that are able to load XP because of their frail, wussy hardware. So, uhhh, who's pumped for Windows 7? [Register Hardware]

DISCUSSION

OK, I will admit I have never used Vista, but, I hear nothing good about it from anyone I know who has used it, not just at Giz. I dont want to have to tweak anything, I just want something that works with all my programs gives me no hassle. I am afraid of Vista and though I really want a new PC (I use both PC and laptop), I will NOT get Vista. In marketing perception IS reality.
