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. New reports show that, while there are still plenty of naysayers where Vista is concerned, two key segments of the market have begun to embrace the wayward operating system.
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.
