Microsoft admits Vista failure

The Inquirer: Microsoft admits Vista failure

Michael Dell uses Ubuntu on his personal laptop, and is now bundling XP on Dell home machines again because Vista is a steaming pile of crap. Microsoft sold only 244 copies in the first two weeks after release -- in a country of 1.3 billion people.

If the entire world (currently 6.5B people) was Chinese, that would correspond to global sales of 1220 (yes, just one thousand, two hundred and twenty) copies of Vista in the first two weeks of release.

Note: The above article has some glaring inaccuracies, the $3 bundle isn't Vista, it's XP Starter, but it's a humourous read nonetheless.
