Dell: many users will skip Vista, “go straight from XP to Windows 7”

Michael Dell says he’s working closely with Microsoft on Windows 7 and likes the way the OS is shaping up, but can understand why many people will skip Vista entirely.

Windows 7 really looks like a good direction to be heading after Vista. Its what Vista should have been from day one really.

(Still won't use it, but I'll badmouth it less)

I think I see something on the horizon...

up til now the pressure has been for Linux desktops to preform (at lest in their interfaces)
More like Windows...

I'mm wondering how long it will take before that pressure is turned toward making Windows function as an interface, more like... well , I'll say it! Like my Fedora? ":O}
