Ain’t life a bitch? Just when Microsoft is gearing up to release Windows 7, its Vista operating system is starting to get the respect it deserves.

More than a third of online gamers use Vista and prefer it to XP, and nearly one third of the corporations in North America and Europe have started implementing the OS.

Good news for the proponents of the operating system: Windows 7 is based on the same code as Vista and shouldn’t be significantly different than Vista. Stats for Embracing Wayward Operating Systems Trending: Older & Mild
