    The "analysts" work for MS and they are giving their opinion of what
    they think will happen in the future so there is no proof that Vista
    will have a "high deployment".

  4. Did you read the article?
    The analysts cited are Gartner, IDC and InformationWeek - none of these
    figures were paid for my Microsoft and are independent work.
    Their expert analysis of the trends is probably slightly better then your
    statement. Yes a trend does not guarantee continued sales however the role
    of an analyst is just that to make expert judgments based on available data
    about the future movement; and the entire business world uses trend analysis
    and modeling to make predictions about growth etc. So the article and its
    conclusions are still valid

    From the article:

    "We really see Windows Vista as the fastest-deployed operating system
    that we've ever released in the business space," says Shanen Boettcher,
    general manager of Windows client product management for Microsoft. "We
    did think it would be faster [than previous versions of Windows]. It's
    still early, but we feel good and on track."
    Yeah, that's why they say "seem" and "appear to"?
    Time will tell. My analysis is that Vista is the Windows Me of NT and
    was only released to make money. I also think that people will get sick
    and tired of being accused of being a thief over and over and over
    again. A few reduced functionalities will be enough to make people think
    twice about Vista. The question is will MS think twice about their
    ineffective anti piracy programs when they release Vienna.

    Agreed, I am tired of people trying to through linux out there on everyone
    and calling Vista a crappy OS.

    Not flaming... but this is my opinion.
    Windows XP had the same reception at its launch, yet it is the most popular
    OS around. Vista is more powerful than XP and it will be the most popular OS
    around too. Linux is powerful only as a server, and sucks as anything else.
    So it won't last.

    You're as predictable as the tide. All you can do is insult the
    messenger and not address the issues.

    When people called Windows Me a "crappy OS", they were right.
    Being as you wrote the message, of course it's your opinion, whether
    it's a flaming opinion or not.
    Not due to quality but due to MS' strong arm marketing tactics.

    Linux is powerful only as a server, and sucks as anything else.
    Um, Unix has been around much longer than Windows. Thanks to Microsoft's
    WPA, WGA, WGA/N, SPP, and DRM, Linux will hit the big time. MANY people
    are making the switch. This didn't happen back before Microsoft
    instituted their you are a thief until you prove your innocence over and
    over and over again.

    So you like it when someone hurls an insult and doesn't address the
    issues and you think it's cute.

    Then read again. You clearly misunderstood. It seems you never got past
    the first paragraph or maybe you didn't understand the structure of the
    article?

    MS Claim
    Data
    Discuss Data
    Discuss Data
    Discuss Data
    This is where you are pointed out as a troll. You gave a clear
    "generalized" statement:

    "The "analysts" work for MS"

    You even put quotes around the word analysts. See the "s" on the end of
    that word? You try to make readers believe that the ENTIRE article is
    derived from MS employees of which you are 100% wrong, as Mike pointed out.

    You only have ONE quote that was from MS. Therefore the analysts DO NOT
    work for MS. Plus, the initial statement from MS was not from an analyst it
    was from a general manager.

    This is a perfect example of how you are incapable of comprehending more
    then one thing at a time. You read ONE THING you do not like and fixate on
    it. Then, you never let it go as you will clearly prove with following
    replies.

    They used those words appropriately and I agree, their analyst is leaps and
    bounds better then your banter.

    Hahaha...good one!
    Um...did you just now figure out that people are in business to make money?
    Wow, how old are you again? You should have figured that one out a LONG
    time ago.

    Once again, you speak of nonsense. Registering your purchased product is
    not a negative action nor is MS calling anyone a thief. It's ok though, we
    all understand that this is all you have left to hang on to.

    The average user will never have to call MS.
    The average user will never know what activation is.

    These are special circumstances seen by a very small percentage of people.
    When are you going to figure that out?

    I hope not! You'll note that this new MAJOR release of their OS costs the
    SAME as XP. Usually product gets MORE expensive over time. Because they
    are able to secure their product they are able to keep costs down. Yes
    alias, Ultimate is NOT a direct upgrade from anything (it doesn't count, it's
    considered MORE).

    Oh no they weren't, it took me about 9 months to find work arounds to all the
    problems I had. Once I did that well, it was quite stable. It only gave me a
    blue screen of death (BSOD) once probably, every other month. I used it for
    about 2 years, until Windows XP SP1 came out.

    I used Win Me too for awhile. It was usable but not stable like XP or Linux.
