Dude!

"Is this another sign that Microsoft realises Vista is a mistake? Discuss on our Forums."

Bit harsh aint it.... It's hardly a mistake. All they are acknowledging is that it requires too much power to be run on the cheap machines aimed toward internet and simple office work.

Still no harm in having both out.

I dont think Vista is a failure. I've never got a BSOD screen ever, this does mean it is stable in my case, but there are those times Vista does really PI$$ me off. Like when I login and I am seeing the welcome screen over 2-3 minutes and sometimes the windows never respond.

I beleive if they are going to extend the deadline then PC/Laptop makers should continue supporting XP with drivers for their newest products. Becasue some laptop dont need to have Vista on them.

Feel sorry for some Laptops users coz they need to buy a new one. Obviously not now but after 2010. They should consider using Linux - Ubuntu (Personal Favorite)

I much prefer Vista over XP for multiple reasons, however I know alot of people who are still most comfortable with XP, so I'm glad it's staying for a little while longer.

Meh, we`ll be using something else next year.

Atm we have both worlds of XPSP3 & VISTASP1, each with their uses depending on what pc ur installation is for.
